Northaw CE Primary School and Nursery

Loving for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Forever in Faith


If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.


1 Corinthians 13:1

New International Version


At Northaw, learning others’ languages demonstrates our love for everyone. We follow French from Language Angels. Every child in key stage 2 has access to Home School too. We both promote whole-school language and signage, and celebrate the languages used by pupils at home, especially where English is an additional language. We participate in International Mother Language Day. Ofsted’s research review series has informed our practice in this area.

Adaptation for Inclusion


We want pupils with SEND to achieve exceptionally well in French, and have constructed a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. The curriculum is successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know and can do with increasing fluency and independence.

Teachers can also refer to our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Guidance where classroom difficulties and strategies to support are listed by area of need.
