Languages (French and German) (Y135)

Languages are an integral part of the curriculum. Learning a language is ‘a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures’ (DfE, 2013). It helps to equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. It encourages pupils to appreciate and celebrate difference. Ofsted Curriculum Review Series, 2021.
