MFL

Our Vision:

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success” Henry Ford

In the MFL Department we are committed to ensuring that all students have the best possible learning experience.

Languages are part of the cultural richness of our society and the world in which we live and work. In the MFL Department we support all students to appreciate different countries, cultures, communities and people. We are committed to giving students the ability to understand and communicate in another language; a lifelong skill for education, employment and leisure. Learning languages will help students to develop their communication skills and will also support the development of literacy skills in the students’ own language.

We set high expectations for all and encourage students to have a positive attitude towards learning languages. We reward students who participate well and seek to encourage all to be confident and resilient. Within the department we endeavour to develop skills as well as knowledge – skills such as problem solving, decision making, teamwork, leadership and communication. We are committed to building good relationships with all students and as a team we constantly reflect on and refine our own practice and share with others, ensuring all students have the best possible learning experience.
