Foreign Language

French is introduced for children in KS2.


St. Cuthbert’s believe that the learning of a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for the pupils. Pupils develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for future language learning. 

The learning of a foreign language provides a medium for cross-curricular links and for reinforcement of knowledge, skills and understanding developed in other subjects.

Topics, Coverage and Skills

Within these topics we ensure that we cover all elements of the National Curriculum in a two year cycle; the following document shows this coverage:


Alongside this, we plan how skills progress and are taught each year; the document below shows how these skills progress each year.
