Modern Foreign Languages and International Links
At Haydn, we believe that a high-quality modern foreign language education equips pupils with an understanding of the world and their place within it. We value the celebration of language and culture and encourage all pupils to appreciate and respect the diversity in both our school and the wider community. We want language learning to be memorable and meaningful and aim to develop linguistic skills through a variety of interactive and engaging lessons. We want our children to be able to express ideas and thoughts in another language and understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing. Pupils will learn new ways of thinking and develop linguistic skills that will lay foundations for further language training. The intent of our language teaching is to equip children not only with the ability to express spoken and written thoughts in another language, but to develop an international and inclusive outlook. Haydn children should leave our school using language to help them think creatively, confidently and curiously. Children must embody our core values; to be ready, resilient, resourceful, reflective and respectful.
At Haydn, we intend that all pupils will:
Building on this knowledge and understanding, pupils are equipped for life in modern Britain, in which work and activities increasingly involve using languages other than English.
