The core language taught at Villiers Primary School is French. Our planning is based on the New Primary French Scheme, which covers all the components of the Programme of Study. It is our intention that all children in Key Stage 2 will access quality first teaching of French in order to lay the foundations for further language learning in future.


Our aims in teaching a language:

  • To develop an interest in learning other languages.

  • To introduce young children to another language in a way that is enjoyable and stimulating.

  • To encourage children’s confidence and creative skills.

  • To stimulate and encourage children’s curiosity about language.

  • To encourage children to be aware that language has a structure and that the structure differs from one language to another.

  • To understand basic grammar points that link to another language.

  • To help children develop their awareness of cultural differences in other countries.

  • To develop listening, speaking, reading and writing skills.

  • To lay the foundations for future language learning.
