Supporting Pupils with Home, Heritage and Community Languages (primary)

Information for schools and trusts

13 June 2022

According to the latest school census information available from the Department for Education (17 June 2021), one in every five children (20.3%) in primary education in England brings with them lived experience of at least one other language and culture.

ASCL MFL Consultant Suzanne O’Farrell, together with Goldsmiths, University of London and the Research in Primary Languages Network (RiPL), have produced Supporting Pupils with Home, Heritage and Community Languages: Information for schools and trusts which seeks to provide guidance for mainstream primary schools in how to develop an inclusive curriculum which supports progress in learning English while also recognising the importance of children’s home languages and cultures.
