    Hi all,

    I wondered if I could get people's thoughts on the benefits of MFL enrichment in terms of students' engagement and attainment? I am currently doing some research on this as part of my National Professional Qualification for Middle Leadership and would really value any input that any of you might be able to give.
    What type of enrichment do you have at your school in terms of clubs or trips? Do the students that attend this enrichment seem to be more engaged in lessons? Does it help with KS4 uptake? Do the attending students attain higher than others?
    Once again many thanks for any input that you may be able to share, I know that time is precious and scarce!

    Many thanks
    Gemma

    Fun clubs do help with uptake, but it is mostly lower ability pupils who attend those clubs. More able pupils seem to see the offer of a visit to Germany as their right and do not always extend their thanks to the organising teacher(s). I don't think that they opt for a language in the hope that they will be offered a foreign visit. The current pattern is to make studying language a requirement for the most able, due to Performance 8 and the Ebaac measures.
