National Curriculum

“Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world.”
Primary National Curriculum 2014.

An understanding of language prepares pupils for a rapidly changing world in which work and other activities are often carried out in languages other than English. The rise of international commerce means that pupils need to be equipped with the skills needed by the international workplace. The choice of language is secondary to the lifelong language learning skills that the pupils will be encouraged to develop. Children will develop skills that they will be able to access in the future, to learn new languages or to deepen their knowledge in an existing language. Increased capability in the use of languages promotes initiative, confidence and encourages diversity within society.

Language learning at Belton-Wroot Federation focuses on French. Although it’s not part of the formal curriculum in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 elements of other languages are introduced as opportunities arise.  We do this because we believe that many children really enjoy learning to speak another language. We also believe that the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster the language in question is acquired.

French is taught to all Key Stage 2 children as part of the curriculum. This provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for all pupils. Learning another language raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural nature of the world, giving them an insight into their own culture and those of others. 

The overarching aims and objectives of learning a modern foreign language in Belton school are to:

  • foster an interest in learning other languages
  • become familiar with sounds and written form of a language
  • develop language and language-learning skills
  • help the children develop their awareness of cultural similarities and differences in other countries. 

At Belton we use Rising Stars ‘Eurostars’ to support our delivery of the curriculum and we enjoy making our language work visible within school.
