Modern Foreign Languages (MFL)


At Higher Failsworth Primary School, MFL should be fully inclusive to every child.  Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the National Curriculum for MFL, which should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.  The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing.  It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, learn new ways of thinking and read great literature in the original language.


We aim

  • To develop children’s experience of language acquisition and encourage curiosity about languages.
  • To develop their understanding of what they hear and read, and have an ability to express themselves in speech and writing.
  • To extend their knowledge of how language works and explore differences between Spanish and English
  • To strengthen their sense of identity through learning about culture and comparing it with their own culture.

To support our children to achieve these aims, we have chosen to use ‘Language Angels’ to support our implementation of the curriculum. You can find their progression document here.
