Our Languages Goals

The St Augustine’s Academy curriculum for Modern Foreign Languages aims to ensure that all children: 

A high quality languages education should foster children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. At St Augustine’s we are committed to ensuring that developing competence in another language enables children to interpret, create and exchange meaning within and across cultures. It also helps children develop skills that will open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French in KS2 provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further foreign language teaching at KS3. 



Our Modern Foreign Language curriculum ensures that children develop their knowledge of where different languages, including the range of home languages spoken by the families of the school, as well as French, are spoken in the world. Varied learning experiences, also ensure that languages are celebrated throughout the school community whilst providing a context for language learning and develop the children’s understanding of different cultures.
