Curriculum Intent Statement for French

Our vision is that pupils will leave primary school with enthusiasm for language learning and with the ability to speak, read and write phrases in French.

At Porthleven School we believe that learning a language helps to promote understanding and appreciation for other cultures and an opportunity to develop social interaction as well as developing pupils’ communication skills.  We will provide the building blocks for children to understand how languages are structured and this will develop their language understanding to aid their continued studies of foreign languages at secondary school.  In learning another language, we will build their confidence when communicating in French.
