Siarter Iaith Cymraeg Campus



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. In a nutshell, 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 exhorts participation from every member of the school community, and members of the school workforce and council, 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.

By identifying success criteria for each target – we have prepared an Implementation Programme that every school should be able to complete successfully. The Language Charter is based on steps that are deemed to be good practice, and that every school should therefore be able to implement. Achieving these initial goals in the first year means that CCYD is proud to announce it has achieved the Bronze Award Status.

The aim is to achieve the gold award over a three year period.
