As an academy with some freedoms over our curriculum, we have taken the decision to temporarily limit our teaching of a foreign language to Year 6 children in the Summer term. We have made this decision for the following reasons:
- A significant proportion of our children have English as an Additional language. For some children, it is their third language.
- Through our recovery curriculum, we are placing greater emphasis on up-skilling English vocabulary and writing above all other subject areas and so are dedicating more of our learning time to this area of the curriculum. We aim to reintroduce MFL in the Autumn term of 2022.
