Subject Vision

‘Birchensale Middle School lies at the heart of the community. Our caring family values ensure the best possible environment for every pupil to realise their full potential’

Learning a Modern Foreign Language is an important part of our pupils’ curriculum as languages are part of the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work. Our Modern Foreign Languages curriculum is designed to engage and challenge pupils to understand and communicate in other languages. We endeavour to develop enthusiastic learners by making learning languages a positive and enjoyable experience through the use of a variety of teaching and learning activities. Our Modern Foreign Languages curriculum focuses on building upon prior language skills and knowledge to develop pupils’ confidence and independence, as well as celebrating the success of all pupils. Our aim is to promote cultural awareness by supporting pupils to learn about and respect other countries and cultures. Ultimately, we want to instil a love of languages and to equip our pupils with the skills required for further study.
