French Pen Pals 


We strive to provide the children with wider opportunities across all areas of the curriculum. St Bridget's has made links with a school in France. The children enjoy writing and recieving letters from their French pen pals.



St Bridget's Catholic Primary School are proud to be awarded 'International School Award' which which celebrates those who do exceptional work in international education. 

We offer a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to provide pupils with the cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

St Bridget’s international work includes sharing letters with a partner school in France and raising awareness about sustainability fair trade and the struggles of refugees.

Embedding an international dimension in children’s education ensures that they are truly global citizens and helps prepare them for successful lives and careers in an increasingly global economy.

French at St Bridget's

At St Bridget's we pride ourselves on teaching a broad an varied curriculum and teaching our Key Stage 2 children a foreign language is an important part of that. We want to equip our children with the skills and knowledge to become global citizens. Through our teaching of French, not only do children learn a new language, but they also study the culture of the country.

Modern Foreign Languages National Curriculum

The national curriculum for languages aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied.
