Siarter Iaith Cymraeg – Bronze Award
The objective of the Language Charter 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 the Criw Cymraeg along with the Charter lead are instrumental in leading and driving the Language Charter forward.
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 Language Charter is based on steps that are deemed to be good practice, and that every school should therefore be able to implement.
The targets are broken down into 10 areas
1 – Establishing a Visual Welsh Ethos
2 – The advantages of Learning Welsh
3 – Using incidental Welsh in the Classroom
4 - Using incidental Welsh outside of the Classroom
5 – Welsh in assemblies
6 – Using apps and websites to enhance learning and enjoyment
7 – Enrichment activities
8 – Developing Reading
9 – Using Welsh across the curriculum
10 – A positive attitude
Achieving these initial goals in the ﬁrst year will ensure a bronze award for the school. Mrs Roberts has been leading the school towards the Bronze Award this year 2016-2017.
