St Matthew's C.E Primary School

“I can do all things because Christ gives me strength” Philippians 4:13

"To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world"

                                                                                                                                               Chinese Proverb


At St Matthew’s Primary school, our school vision is to encourage all children to flourish spiritually, morally, emotionally, physically and intellectually in all aspects of life demonstrating perseverance and resilience; this is emulated across all curriculum areas. 

The MFL curriculum intent at St Matthew’s provides a high-quality languages education that fosters pupils’ curiosity and deepens their understanding of the world. The Spanish curriculum ensures all pupils:

  • Have access to a rich and varied MFL Curriculum that ignites the imagination.
  • Understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources.
  • Speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation.
  • Can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt.
  • Discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.

We believe that the early acquisition of Spanish will facilitate the learning of other foreign languages later in life. We will prepare children for the KS3 language curriculum to enable them to transfer their knowledge and skills confidently and successfully, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries when they leave school.
