Session 1: Ensuring outstanding MFL provision in the primary school

During this session, we will focus on the role of the subject leader for MFL within the primary setting, exploring, evaluating and breaking down the Programme of Study for languages at Key Stage 2. From this, we will then explore how subject leads can best select (or create) a scheme of work which ensures that all pupils, including those with SEND, are enabled to makes substantial progress in one foreign language over time.

Delegates will also examine what progress over the four years of MFL study at Key Stage might look like and how might we monitor and record evidence that pupils are successfully retaining key linguistic and grammatical structures. Finally, we will consider what makes a successful cross-phase partnership for the purposes of transition.

Session 2: Preparing for an Ofsted Deep Dive

This session is an opportunity to explore what a ‘Deep Dive’ into MFL will look like during an Ofsted Inspection, including a focus on Intent, Implementation and Impact and what these mean in practice. Delegates will consider the types of documentation that they will need to have to hand during any conversations with inspectors and the kinds of questions they may be asked.

We will also consider how we might go about presenting inspectors with evidence of sustained and substantial progress over the four years of language study at Key Stage 2.
