Additional Curriculum Information

Intent

Our vision for our students is that they develop the skills and confidence to consider themselves as “global citizens”. We want our students to understand other countries and cultures so that they are open to new experiences. With our KS3 curriculum, we will take our students through a journey to discover who they are; we want them to understand what their local community means to them and finally how they can become part of a world characterised by international links and intercultural connections; linguistic skills are crucial for employment and careers, as proficiency in a foreign language enhances career opportunities.

Assessment 

We feel that our students should be given the opportunity to always try their best to demonstrate their skills in MFL. In order to cater for all our students, we design assessments to check their listening, reading, speaking and writing abilities. 

We recognise that, while all students should be challenged, some might need more support. For this reason, we produce vocabulary tests, mid-module assessments and end of module assessments that are differentiated by tasks in order to cater for each individual.

SEND and Most Able Students 

We have high aspirations for all of our students. Regardless of ability, we always aim to challenge our students while scaffolding and producing relevant resources to meet their needs.

Following the school policy, most able students are added to the Most Able and Talented list for our curriculum area. In lessons, students will be specifically encouraged to extend their writing and speaking activities and develop a more sophisticated vocabulary.

We have put the following strategies in place to ensure that we cater for all of our students:

  • specific seating plans
  • differentiated resources and outcomes
  • reading and recording information about individual students to inform planning
  • frequent differentiated vocabulary tests and retrieval practices
  • scaffolding for writing tasks
  • access to intervention
