MFL (Spanish)

“Languages are an essential part of a broad, balanced curriculum. Not only do they provide an opportunity to communicate more effectively with others. They also help children to understand what it is to be a global citizen. This includes the importance of tolerance and understanding, which is crucial knowledge in today’s world."​

Michael Wardle HMI Subject Lead for Languages.
