One Family, Aiming High, Learning Together with God
To develop linguists with a respect and interest in cultures and language.
Linguists at St Peter’s recognise the importance of empathy and respect for other cultures and people and demonstrate this through a developing understanding of the relationships between language and identity, cultures and the world around them. They hold a genuine and positive curiosity for language learning. Linguists at St Peter’s are working towards becoming life-long language learners. We follow the Language Angels programme for our modern Foreign language.
Our MFL Aims:
- Broaden our children’s understanding of the world and deepen their empathy and respect for other cultures and people.
- Develop their confidence and ability to use a foreign spoken language.
- Develop their resilience when learning to read and write in an unfamiliar, foreign language.
The Curriculum will:
- Recognise those pupils who can speak another language and use them as experts to support learning.
