At Bardsey Primary School we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It helps them to develop communication skills including key skills of speaking and listening and extends their knowledge of how language works. Learning another language gives children a new perspective on the world, encouraging them to understand their own cultures and those of others.
Bardsey Primary School provides age-appropriate Primary Languages learning opportunities for all children throughout the school. The focus language taught in our school is French from Foundation Class to Year 6 and the Scheme of work indicates the units/areas taught throughout the school, although the Government’s statutory requirement only refers to Key Stage 2.
