The philosophy of the MFL department at Fairfield is based on the belief that students should be able to communicate for a real purpose in their chosen foreign language. To this end, the department emphasises the development of practical skills in lessons, in an engaging and enjoyable way. We also encourage students to foster an understanding and appreciation of foreign cultures – whether it’s tasting food or trying salsa dancing! We also endeavour to offer experiences abroad where possible.
Students will have the opportunity to study either French or Spanish at Key Stage 3 and we expect the majority of our students to continue studying a foreign language at Key Stage 4.
Fairfield has been graded as Outstanding by Ofsted in its last three inspections, due to the commitment and enthusiasm of our staff. We constantly strive to improve teaching and learning and value our partnership with parents and carers as the key to success for all our students.
