Languages at Newfield
At Newfield most of our children and staff speak more than one language. The main languages spoken are Somali, Arabic, English, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, Tamil, Urdu and Pashto.
The core language taught at Newfield is Spanish. Our MFL curriculum intends to expose our pupils to a new language, in order to develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and prepare them for KS3. We aim to foster children's curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world, alongside providing opportunities for them to communicate for practical purposes and learn new ways of thinking.
At Newfield Primary School we know that, within the context of SEND, personalisation of the curriculum is key so that each individual’s priorities can be considered in order to prepare them adequately for adulthood with the best possible quality of life. Our ambitious curriculum can be successfully adapted to meet the needs of pupils with SEND, developing their knowledge, skills and abilities to apply what they know with increasing fluency and independence. We believe that it is vital that our pupils are equipped with the tools needed to become independent, inquisitive learners in all subjects and that pupils with SEND achieve the very best outcome and reach their full potential.
