We are undertaking an exciting new Welsh Pilot Programme called Siarter Iaith Cymraeg.
The simple objective of the Language Charter is to provide a clear framework, which can be used to promote and increase the use of Welsh by children in a whole school context. In a nutshell, the Charter’s main aim is to promote a strong Welsh ethos in schools and to provide a range of enriching activities that propel the children to enjoy learning Welsh.
The Language Charter exhorts participation from every member of the school community, and members of the school workforce and council, the pupils and their parents, school governors and the wider community are all encouraged to take full ownership of it. The Criw Cymraeg are instrumental in leading and driving the Language Charter forward.
Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards
To ensure that all efforts are rewarded, the Charter is based on the principle that every school follows challenging but attainable targets in connection with promoting the use of the Welsh language. The specific targets included in the Language Charter can form part of a school’s Welsh Development Plan.
We are following an Implementation Programme to complete successfully. The Language Charter is based on steps that are deemed to be good practice, and that we should therefore be able to implement. Achieving these initial goals in the first year will ensure a bronze award for the school.
- We were awarded the Bronze Award in the 2017-2018 Academic Year. We are very proud of our pupils and staff for all the hard work they have done to achieve this.
- Next goal is the Silver Award.
