We are undertaking the Siarter Iaith Cymraeg Award. We are awaiting assessment for our Silver level in Summer 2023. Over the past 18 months we have worked incredible hard to ensure that the Welsh language is embedded in our teaching and learning and is spoken confidently throughout the school. In 2022 we were awarded with the Bronze Award and are now building up to the Silver. Watch this space!
- 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 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.
- 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 has ensured a bronze award for the school.
Our fantastic Criw Cymraeg are going to continue to be busy taking assemblies, launching competitions and playing welsh games in our yards and making links with other schools (Welsh first language schools included).
We look forward to updating you with our progress!
