Henbury Court Primary Academy

Modern Foreign Languages

‘Learning a foreign language is a liberation from insularity and provides an opening to other cultures. A high-quality languages education should foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world. The teaching should enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. ‘

At Henbury Court our MFL curriculum develops a genuine interest and curiosity in foreign languages and enables children to recognise the benefit of learning a foreign language. We want to ensure all children develop language skills and knowledge that will open up a wide range of possibilities in further education, jobs and life experiences.

Our MFL curriculum will enable children to celebrate and welcome differences in our world. This will enable children to show respect to other cultures and play a valuable part in our global society.

At Henbury Court we aim to make learning meaningful for children and allows them to make links across the curriculum.
