Modern Foreign Languages

Modern Foreign Languages at Hardwicke

Hardwicke Parochial Primary Academy understands that learning a foreign language provides a valuable educational, social and cultural experience for our pupils. We recognise the importance of our children having a knowledge and understanding of the wider world, in order to broaden their horizons and to recognise and appreciate life outside of Gloucester, therefore growing a brighter future together. 

As part of the requirement to teach KS2 pupils a language, pupils at our school will be taught French. We believe our languages curriculum opens pupils up to a variety of cultures and helps to foster pupils’ curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world, creating potential opportunities in the future for visiting, studying and working abroad.

Our Languages Curriculum is taught through the Kapow scheme of work and resources to ensure we offer a relevant, broad and ambitious curriculum where children will feel able to continue studying languages beyond KS2.
