Modern Foreign Languages
The curriculum at Primet Primary school will ensure that all learners leave school as resilient and confident individuals, who lead healthy and happy lives. Our core values of kindness, respect and trust influence the actions and decisions made by the entire school community. Through an enriched and bespoke curriculum that utilises the local and wider community, pupils will be ambitious with high aspirations for themselves and others. Pupils appreciate and celebrate the school’s diverse community, demonstrating spiritual, moral and cultural awareness and understanding. They will be well-prepared for the world of work, through the acquisition of the knowledge and skills necessary to become fully literate and numerate. Pupils will be active enquirers, who possess the creativity and ability to think critically to solve problems and make connections in an ever-changing world. With a growth mindset, pupils are prepared to take risks. They see mistakes as a learning opportunity and challenge as an enjoyable struggle. As emotionally intelligent individuals, pupils will have an understanding of their own and others’ needs, that will equip them to take responsibilities and lead at a local, national and global level.
At Primet, we believe that the learning of a language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills, including key skills in speaking, listening, reading and writing. The pupil’s knowledge of how language works will be developed and extended. The linguistic skills gained will assist and lay foundations for further language learning. It will provide pupils with the confidence and independence to explore the structure of language. Learning another language gives pupils a new and broader perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand and respect their own cultures and those of others.
