The Welsh Language Charter
The Welsh Government has launched a strategy to achieve a million Welsh speakers by 2050. It is therefore crucially important that children and young people are given the opportunities to use the language in a variety of social contexts.
The aim of the Charter is to increase the social use of the Welsh language amongst our children. Ysgol Glan Cleddau has already won the bronze award, and over the next three years, we will be given the opportunity to win the Charter’s silver and gold awards. This depends on how much Welsh is spoken by the pupils daily – in a variety of contexts both at school and in the community. This is how we can contribute to the success of the Charter at Ysgol Caer Elen:
- to speak Welsh in the classroom (even when a teacher isn’t present)
- to speak Welsh with teachers (apart from in English lessons)
- to speak Welsh with all staff, including support staff
- to speak Welsh in the corridor and on the school yard
- to speak Welsh outside school
- to watch Welsh programmes and Welsh DVDs
- to listen to Welsh music
- to use technology through the medium of Welsh e.g. apps, the internet, texting etc.
