The purpose of the foreign language curriculum at Brook Mead is to develop in all scholars a wide variety of transferable skills, which are both vital to their success across the curriculum and future progression to college and beyond.
The curriculum supports our scholars in becoming confident and successful communicators as they are trained to use a range of essential communication skills both verbal and written.
It also allows pupils the opportunity to view their world from a different perspective and learn new ways of thinking, fostering an appreciation of diversity through exposure to the customs, arts, and literature of the countries where the target language is used.
In addition, it is a gateway to an understanding and tolerance of other cultures and ways of life. As well as equipping scholars with a wealth of key skills, such as resilience and problem solving, the language curriculum provides them with the secure foundation of linguistic knowledge required for further language study and to study and work in other countries in the future.
