At Balladen Community Primary School we understand that learning a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. It will also create potential opportunities in the future for studying and working abroad.
As part of the National Curriculum requirement to teach KS2 pupils a language, pupils at our school are taught French. We believe our languages curriculum opens pupils up to a variety of cultures and helps to foster pupils' curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. It helps children develop skills that can open further opportunities later in life. The teaching of French provides an appropriate balance of spoken and written language and lays the foundations for further language studies at KS3.
