On parle Français ici !

(We speak French here!)


The National Curriculum states that learning a foreign language gives children an opening to other cultures, fosters curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. At St Luke's CE Primary School we aim to develop children’s enthusiasm for foreign languages and cultures from an early age and to give then a firm foundation for studying languages throughout their education. Children from Foundation stage to year 6 learn French as part of our enrichment curriculum. In line with the national curriculum, we focus communication for practical purposes both in speech and, as the children progress through the school, in writing.


In all year-groups the emphasis is upon enjoyment, with games and singing in French regularly a feature of French lessons at St Luke's.




French at our schools is exciting, fun, accessible to all and relevant to the world that we live in.


All children will be given the opportunity to take part in activities that will progressively develop their skills in listening, speaking and then reading and writing in French.
