Walter Evans Church of England Primary & Nursery School

Modern Foreign Languages


 “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes into his head.  If you talk to him in his language, that goes into his heart .”

 Nelson Mandela

 Modern Foreign Languages: Our Intent for the subject.

French helps us to develop curiosity in other cultures and a love of learning other languages. It helps to develop our self-confidence, when communicating in a new language. Learning about the many countries around the world who speak the French language gives us a greater understanding of different global communities.  Fun and engaging French activities allow children to work collaboratively and have fun with others.

 How it fits within our school vision.

Our school vision is rooted in the Christian faith. As a proud Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by the Church of England’s vision for education. This vision identifies four interlinking aims for all our pupils and, at its heart, lies LOVE (Luke 10:27).

It is this LOVE for God, for our neighbours and ourselves, that forms our Christian foundation to underpin all that we do.

School Vision Statement

At Walter Evans we believe in a broad and balanced curriculum where all subjects are valued. A broad and balanced curriculum will equip our children with a breadth of knowledge and skills in all areas of the curriculum. We aim for our pupils to ‘Persevere, be curious and inspired through their learning’.
