MFL Policy 2017

The Modern Foreign Language taught at Headfield Junior School is French. Through the teaching of a Modern Foreign Language we aim to increase children’s linguistic competence through regular timetabled French sessions; to exploit cultural links and experiences when opportunities arise; to promote positive attitudes towards language learning through a range of activities and to develop listening skills and phonological awareness.
