At our school, we are committed to providing a high-quality French language education for all our students. Our aim is to help them develop the skills and confidence to communicate effectively in French, both in spoken and written form. We also strive to deepen their understanding of French culture and society, and to develop their competence in grammar and vocabulary. Through interactive and engaging activities, we hope to foster a love of language learning and a desire to use their skills in real-life situations. By the time they leave our primary school, we want our students to be proficient and passionate French speakers, with a strong foundation for continued language learning.


At BHCPS we use the 'Language Angels' teaching materials which ensures a coherent and progressive journey through Key Stage 2. There are several ways to implement language teaching in the classroom which includes:

  1. Use a variety of teaching methods, such as games, role-plays, songs, and stories, to engage students and make the language learning experience fun and interactive.

  2. Encourage students to speak and write in French as much as possible, both individually and in groups.

  3. Provide a range of authentic materials, such as books, videos, and songs, to expose students to real-life examples of the language and culture.

  4. Foster a positive and supportive learning environment that encourages students to take risks and make mistakes, as this is an important part of language learning.

  5. Encourage students to make connections between French and their own language and culture, and to think about the similarities and differences between the two.

  6. Use a variety of assessment methods, such as quizzes, tests, projects, and oral presentations, to evaluate student progress and provide feedback for improvement.

  7. Incorporate cultural elements, such as festivals and customs, into the curriculum to give students a deeper understanding of French-speaking societies.


There are several ways that we measure the impact of our teaching. These include:

  1. Assessments: Use a variety of assessment methods, such as quizzes, tests, projects, and oral presentations, to evaluate student progress and understanding.

  2. Classroom observation: Observe students during language-based activities and take note of their engagement, participation, and progress.

  3. Student feedback: Ask students for feedback on their language learning experiences and how they feel they have progressed.

  4. Teacher surveys: Collect feedback from teachers on the effectiveness of the French language curriculum and any areas that may need improvement.

  5. Student work samples: Review student work samples, such as writing or speaking assignments, to assess their understanding and use of the language.

  6. Future readiness: Track the success of students as they progress to more challenging content to determine the long-term impact of the language-based curriculum.
