Our intentions in Modern Foreign Languages

At Milford-on-Sea Primary School ‘We CARE’ about language education. It fosters curiosity in the world and deepens understanding of identity, diversity, cultures and world views. It also gives a sense of how languages are interconnected and continually evolving and borrowing from each other. Children can also explore national and international contexts in which languages are spoken in different continents i.e. Spanish in Latin America.

Our teaching of MfL & Spanish should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. It should also provide opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes, understand basic language structures and introduce them to simple, or familiar stories, songs and rhymes.

Language teaching at MOSPS should provide the foundation for learning further languages

Learning a language also helps our pupils’ Growth Mindset and provides the foundation for learning further languages, as they progress through their learning journey into secondary school and beyond into our global community.


It is our intention that pupils will learn to:

  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of sources.
  • Speak with increasing confidence and fluency, communicating what they want to say through discussion and asking questions.
  • Continually improve the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • Begin to write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures they have learnt.
  • Gain the courage to ‘Have a Go’ in a supportive classroom environment.

MFL in our school is taught using a Scheme of Work produced by Language Angels, which has been created in accordance with the National Curriculum for Modern Foreign Languages.

Key Concepts in the teaching of MfL


The teaching of MfL is considered through the lens of key concepts which give focus to particular units of work. Each concept is broken down into knowledge categories that drive the teaching objectives within MfL units and lessons.
