There's No M in MFL - On-Demand

Many primaries find themselves hard-pressed to reach the expected standards for spoken foreign languages, but the National Curriculum has a completely different focus for ancient languages. Where Latin is taught, the priority is for comprehension of the written word, discussed in English, as well as classical history and cultural capital.

About this Webinar

“Modern foreign languages” used to be an optional subject, but in the 2014 curriculum it became statutory with a new name, “foreign languages”, and its expectations were raised considerably. Many schools struggle with the requirements for a range of reasons: teacher expertise; isolation from other learning; even behaviour. There is a different focus for ancient languages, though, and this can drive your children’s confidence in English comprehension and speech. This 1 hour webinar suggests that Latin might be a much-underestimated context for a range of primary school needs.


  • National Curriculum for Languages - requirements and misconceptions
  • Using Latin to drive up standards in English comprehension, grammar and spelling
  • How Latin can improve etymological and morphemic understanding, to help children from disadvantaged backgrounds


  • KS2 teachers
  • foreign language leads
  • senior leaders
