Our aim as a county is to inspire our children and young people to use their Welsh in all aspects of their lives.
Two languages = Twice the choice!
Objectives
  • Ensure that all the stakeholders of the school are aware of our vision 'The Welsh language is all ours.'
  • Raise the profile of the use of Welsh around the school.
  • The School Council promotes the use of Welsh.
  • We have a clear development plan for promoting the charter.
  • We use the baseline as a starting point to assess impact.
How?
We are:-
  • Celebrating and encouraging.
  • The School Council plays a key role in promoting the Welsh language around the school.

  • Key role for the School Council.
  • Use of the character ‘Celt’ in every class.
  • Promoting activities beyond the classroom e.g. Eisteddfod.
  • Visitors e.g. art, music, poetry, sport.
  • Use of digital technology.
  • Reinforcing the need for both wheels to function!
What are the advantages?
  • It is easier for those who speak two languages to learn other languages.
  • Research also determines that bilingual pupils also tend to do better in other subjects at school.
  • More jobs than ever before in Wales are asking for bilingual skills. Welsh is a valuable asset in the workplace
  • On average, bilingual children achieve higher English test and exam results than children who speak only one language.
