Aims and Objectives


The study of Languages prepares pupils to participate in a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English. Pupils use languages to communicate information responsibly and creatively. They learn how to use languages to enable access to ideas and experiences from a wide range of people, communities and cultures. In addition, understanding a modern foreign language increases a child’s understanding of their own language. The process of learning a foreign language reinforces fluency and understanding of grammar, syntax, sentence structure and verbal precision. Increased capability in the use of languages can also promote initiative and independent learning and encourages diversity within society.


Through our teaching of Languages we aim to:

  • Ensure every child has the opportunity throughout Key Stage 2 to study a foreign language and develop their interest in the culture of other nations 
  • Ensure pupils’ learning is enriched in a broad curriculum to which languages contribute 
  • Ensure pupils have access to high quality teaching and learning opportunities, making use of native speakers on Bucks Grid for learning 
  • Help teachers to develop the confidence and competence to teach Languages effectively
