Modern Foreign Languages

At Ledbury, we offer a rich and vibrant curriculum which is ambitious for all learners. Teaching Modern Foreign Languages promotes an interest and curiosity about the wider world and a sense of international identity. Languages raise children’s awareness of being a global citizen.

Our aims of Modern Foreign Language teaching at Ledbury:

    • develop an enthusiasm for learning languages and to become aware of the benefits of understanding and speaking different languages;
    • communicate in other languages by speaking and listening, reading and writing;
    • respect and understand other cultures, heritage and multilingualism;
    • become involved in the international dimension of the school through the development of links with other countries;


Ledbury Primary uses Lightbulb Languages as the basis for its curriculum planning. This scheme ensures that the topics that the children study in French build upon prior learning. While there are opportunities for children of all abilities to develop their skills and knowledge in each lesson, the planned progression built into the scheme of work means that the children are increasingly challenged as they move through the school. Throughout Key Stage 2, French is taught through a combination of dedicated language lessons, teaching language through other subject areas and using language for real purposes in daily classroom routines.
