Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages Statement of Intent

We believe that understanding and being respectful of different cultures is an integral part of living in the world today. Our MFL curriculum is designed to create children who have the confidence to explore the world through language and communication. Learning a language promotes, encourages and instils a broader cultural understanding. As they progress, our linguists will have a range of opportunities to be able to work collaboratively demonstrating tolerance and respect for all, thus adhering to our schools values. Increased capability in the use of MFL promotes initiative, confidence and independent learning and encourages diversity within society. At Boreham Primary School, our Modern Foreign Languages curriculum is delivered through the teaching and learning of Spanish.

Aims and Impact

The Modern Foreign Languages Curriculum at Boreham Primary School aims to:
