Croft Community School believes that having the opportunity to learn a modern foreign language has a vital role to play in the education of its students. Through the study of a foreign language, pupils understand and appreciate different countries, cultures, people and communities – and as they do so, begin to think of themselves as citizens of the world as well as of the United Kingdom.
They explore the similarities and differences between the foreign language they are learning and English or another language. Their listening, reading and memory skills improve, and their speaking and writing become more accurate. The development of these skills, together with pupils’ knowledge and understanding of the structure of language lays down the foundations for future study of languages.
