MFL: British Sign Language



British Sign Language is the MFL studied at Kings Heath Primary School

In line with the 2014 National Curriculum for Modern Foreign Languages, our BSL curriculum aims to ensure that all children:

  • Understand (receptive) and respond (expressive) sign language from a variety of authentic sources.

  • Are able to communicate with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and that they are continually improving the accuracy of their handshapes and facial expression.

  • Use the grammatical structures of BSL

  • Discover and develop an appreciation of communicating in BSL.

We aim to foster children’s curiosity and deepen their understanding of the world whilst also equipping them with the skills and confidence to interact within it. BSL is taught to all KS2 year groups by a specialist BSL teacher.
