Modern foreign languages (MFL)

The subject leader is Mrs Wainwright

Our French subject definition



At Matchborough First School Academy we believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our children. Learning another language gives children the valuable opportunity to develop positive attitudes and respect for languages and cultures other than their own. Our children will be able to acquire and develop language skills, using what they have learned in a range of contexts with increasing competence and confidence, through our high quality teaching and learning.

Our aim at MFSA:


  • A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world and give them opportunities to expand their capital culture knowledge. 
  • 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.
  • Language teaching should provide the foundation for learning further language, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries.
