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

Chinese proverb

Our Vision


At primary school, children are most open and receptive to language acquisition. At Warter, we nurture confident, curious learners by harnessing children's innate curiosity for learning a language, its new words and new sounds.

The core language taught at Warter is French, which provides the foundation for learning further languages at Secondary School.

Learning a Modern Foreign Language (MFL) supports an understanding of living in a multicultural society, provides an opening to other cultures and fosters curiosity about the wider world. It has also been shown to improve critical thinking skills and to enhance social skills.


The opportunity to learn an additional language at Warter school provides children with the means to share their ideas and feelings in another language as well as the ability to converse with others who speak the language. Our learners will find out about another culture and hopefully develop a more global outlook as a result.

Through speaking, reading and writing in a foreign language, children at Warter school will develop the skills and confidence to progress easily from the KS2 curriculum to KS3, regardless of which language they ultimately continue with.

During their time in KS2, we aim to:

  • Develop awareness of cultural similarities and differences.
  • Support their oracy, literacy and listening.
  • Develop phonological knowledge
  • Foster an interest and curiosity about languages.
