Siarter Iaith Cymraeg
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. 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 requires
participation from every member of the school community meaning 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
- 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.
- The Language Charter is based on
steps that are deemed to be good practice, lots of which we are already
doing! Achieving these initial goals in
the first year will ensure a bronze award for the school.
Our fantastic Criw Cymraeg are going
to be busy taking assemblies, launching competitions and playing welsh games in
We look forward to updating you with
