Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Modern Foreign Languages

Bonjour Parkdale!


At Parkdale, we are passionate about delivering French to all our Key Stage 2 students. We believe that learning an additional language is vital in today's ever-changing society. This belief also ties in nicely with our promotion of British Values, celebrating diversity, thoughtfulness and respect of all - irrespective of individual faiths and beliefs. Parkdale also aims to make French accessible and fun for all. In doing so, the teachers promote some of our core learning values, including collaboration, equality, pride and compassion. 


We study the subject of French through our scheme of work La Jolie Ronde. Finally, we aim for French to thrive in our school through raising its profile - namely in the form of displays in classrooms and around school. 


Au revoir!
