The Beacon CE Primary School is currently a Centre of Excellence for teaching French, as awarded by Liverpool LEA.

All children from Nursery to Year 6 receive one weekly French lesson delivered by a native speaking FLA. During this lesson, the class teacher supports the FLA by joining in with activities and making assessments. The additional entitlement to meet the critieria for MFL Centres of Excellence is delivered by the class teacher and may take the form of a second lesson or several smaller lessons of 10minutes. 

Lessons are interactive and provide an appropriate balance of spoken and written language. The focus is on practical communication. Lessons enable pupils to understand and communicate idea, facts and feelings in speech and writing. 

Approaches and activities include a range of games, songs, grammatical structures and phonology, written activities to reinforce learning, knowledge organisers to recall key vocabulary and use of technology such as Language Angels to support learning both in school and at home.
