Modern Foreign Languages


At Acton CE Primary Academy, we are learning French.

Our vision of language learning

We believe that learning another language gives children the valuable opportunity to develop positive attitudes to and respect for languages and cultures other than their own. 


It is our belief that learning a language equips pupils to express themselves in new ways. Great language learning happens in our school when:

  • ·         Children can develop an international outlook and an enhanced understanding of the world.
  • ·         Children acquire an awareness of other cultures, through learning about other countries and their people
  • ·         French lessons are engaging and fun, while ensuring children make progress in language learning.
  • ·         Communication and presentation skills are developed during speaking and listening activities – preparing for life in the real world.
