Our Spanish Policy



At Mount Carmel we intend that children should master Spanish to such an extent that they can go on to have careers within Spanish and make use of Spanish effectively in their everyday lives. Our children will be taught Spanish in a way that ensures progression of skills, and follows a sequence to build on previous learning. Our children will gain experience and skills of a wide range of formal elements of Spanish in a way that will enhance their learning opportunities, enabling them to use Spanish across a range of subjects.




We follow a broad and balanced Spanish curriculum that builds on previous learning and provides both support and challenge for learners. We look at pupils’ work, especially over time as they gain skills and knowledge, observing how they perform in lessons, talking to them about what they know.




Our children enjoy and value Spanish and know why they are doing things, not just how. Children will understand and appreciate the value of Spanish in the context of their personal wellbeing and the creative and cultural industries and their many career opportunities.
