Cymraeg Campus – Bronze Award Project
10th September 2022
Dear Parents (s’) / Guardian (s’)
It is the intention of all members of the Saint Joseph’s RC Primary School Community to peruse the Bronze Award for Cymraeg Campus. We have outlined below the aims of the work we intend to undertake this year as part of our project.
Criw Cymraeg – Welsh Crew
What do we want to achieve this year?
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 Saint Joseph’s School 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 integrating the Welsh language in our school.
The Criw Cymraeg is 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 specific targets included in the Language Charter forms part of Saint Joseph’s School’s Improvement Plan.
The aim is to achieve the gold award over a three year period.
Mrs Houston (Welsh as a Second Language Subject Leader.)
