Modern Foreign Languages

The MFL Subject Leader is: Mrs Sarah Jones

Subject Ambassadors are Solice and Harry

Statement of Intent

The core language taught at Fitzwilliam Primary School is French. Our planning is based on the Le Jolie Ronde  scheme of work which covers all the components of the Programme of Study. It is the intention that all children in KS2 will access first quality teaching of French by their classteacher in order to adequately prepare them for KS3. KS1 children will be introduced to MFL through exploring other languages informally when appropriate.

We have developed a bespoke MFL curriculum, which meets the current needs of children at Fitzwilliam. In developing this curriculum, we have utilised components of published MFL materials including Le Jolie Ronde resources.

MFL in the curriculum

  • We plan using the National Curriculum.
  • We enhance the curriculum using progression grids.
  • Subject Progression grids are used to develop long term planning.
  • Teachers use the long term planning to plan units of work and deliver individual lessons.
