Modern Foreign Languages

Languages promote students’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of different countries’ people, culture, history, literature and arts. Through consistent exposure to a variety of topics, students are challenged to consider their own identity and place in the world and how they can appreciate and empathise with other customs, traditions and cultures.

The Common European Framework for Languages (CEFR) suggests that all secondary students in Europe learn a modern foreign language in order to ‘facilitate communication and interaction among Europeans of different mother tongues and to promote European mobility, mutual understanding and co-operation, and overcome prejudice and discrimination'. This focus on mutual understanding and co-operation is also highlighted in the Department of Education’s advice on promoting fundamental British values as part of SMSC in schools.

Consequently, language learning at HCACP strives to provide young people with the tools not only to communicate effectively in a foreign language, but also to uphold British and European values in modern society.

The languages most in demand by UK business are French, German and Spanish according to a survey in 2016 by the CBI employers’ organisation and Pearson, the education group. Mandarin too is growing in popularity in schools given the current focus on developing links with countries outside of Europe and on an international scale.

At HCACP, we consistently aim to make languages relevant to students and offer them real-life examples of how their languages can be best used in a wide variety of sectors. Our curriculum also reflects this approach, and our teachers are real-life examples of how languages can be used in different career settings and contexts.

Full details of the Modern Foreign Languages curriculum intent, along with the long term curriculum plans are available to download from the bottom of the page.
