Our Intent

At St Luke’s, every child in Key Stage 2 has with the opportunity to learn a foreign language once a week.

We have chosen to teach French as it is an official language in 29 countries and it is spoken in many more. It is also one of the most popular languages taught in Secondary schools.


Our mission is:

  • To inspire children to celebrate and welcome diversity in their school, immediate community as well as the country, continent and world that they live in.

  • Thereby, prepare children to be global citizens of the 21st century.

  • To cultivate high aspirations that will continue to inspire them long after they move on from primary school.

  • To foster a lifelong love of language learning enabling children to keep or further develop their awe and curiosity about other countries, cultures and languages.

  • To challenge and transcend our insularity; learning a language acts like a bridge connecting nations, promoting co-operation and developing a mutual understanding and appreciation.

  • To nurture children’s thought systems and broaden their minds as they discover the world around them from a new perspective.

  • To develop their self-confidence by teaching them additional social skills.

  • To develop children’s resilience when facing unexpected, challenging situations, by helping them to develop strategies to overcome their fear or barriers, and have a go.
