EGA's MFL Intent

We want every child to have every opportunity to experience success in each French learning episode.

At EGA it is recognised that language learning creates opportunity. It is our intent to provide our children with a high-quality education in Modern Foreign Languages (French) which provides opportunity to develop their love of learning about other languages and cultures and helps provide them with an understanding of the world. 

An MFL curriculum should foster the natural curiosity of children in the world around them and at Eldon Grove Academy we aim to develop our children’s language skills through the learning of French. All children will be expected to achieve their full potential. The ultimate aim is that pupils will feel confident engaging in spoken French, develop skills in reading, listening and writing and know how important languages will be in their future. Through their development of skills in learning an additional language, they will develop transferable communication skills which will have a positive impact on future opportunities at the same time as building their cultural capital.

We hope that all children will develop a genuine interest and curiosity about languages, finding them enjoyable and exciting and show a desire to continue their language learning past Key Stage 2.

At Eldon Grove Academy, we believe that the study of a Modern Foreign Language prepares a pupil to better understand and participate in a rapidly changing world. Work, study and other activities are increasingly carried out in languages other than English and so knowledge of French is a valuable asset, regardless of a child’s aspirations for the future.


Pupils are Eldon Grove Academy are taught French weekly, with lessons allowing children a wealth of opportunities to build confidence and fluency through speaking, listening, reading and writing. Lessons are planned with progression in mind and units of work build on a child’s prior knowledge of the language as they move through school.


Curriculum enhancements for French take place regularly throughout the year. We hold an annual French day and in recent years this has seen us explore French through food, football, French stories read by Nattalingo, a native French speaker and by exploring Francophone countries.
