MFL Curriculum Intent Statement

At St Edmund’s Catholic School we value the importance of language learning in today’s global economy. As specialist linguists we aim to deliver a stimulating, quality first learning environment in which all our students feel supported, valued and challenged.


Our MFL curriculum is designed to engage students of all abilities and lessons are interactive and fun. With an emphasis on communication, skills and transactional language, we aim to develop confident language learners. In order to bring languages to life in the classroom, we use a variety of resources, including technology and authentic materials.


Through enrichment projects and overseas visits, we also aim to develop wider cultural awareness and offer students an insight into other cultures. EAL students are actively encouraged to take a GCSE in their home language.


All pupils in the school study French or Spanish and, in their lessons, our pupils will gain systematic knowledge of key vocabulary and structures, grammar and phonics of the new language and a better understanding of how these are used by French and Spanish speakers.
