Modern Foreign Languages
‘Languages are an essential part of a broad, balanced curriculum. Not only do they provide an opportunity to communicate more effectively with others, they also help children to understand what it is to be a global citizen. This includes the importance of tolerance and understanding, which is crucial knowledge in today’s world.’ (Michael Wardle HMI for languages).
Our vision is for all pupils to share and celebrate the wealth of languages spoken in our school and to become lifelong language learners.
The focus language at Glade is French, although, the choice of language is secondary to the nurturing of confidence, enthusiasm and a love of languages. Through cross-curricular activities and positive language learning experiences, we aim to facilitate the development of effective and transferable language learning skills that will provide a gateway to the wider world.
Our aim is to be able to remove any barriers to learning. To achieve this, consultations (customer satisfaction surveys) with our pupils are invaluable for our pupils to have a voice, to give their feedback and express what interests them and what they want to learn. This ensures all our learners are immersed in stimulating and fun teaching and learning activities which capture their imagination and interest, whatever their social background or ability.
Through feedback from secondary schools and the attainment of our pupils when they leave primary, we are confident our learners become responsible and effective contributors to a changing world with an understanding and appreciation of cultures and languages in addition to their own.
