Siarter Iaith ~ Welsh Language Charter
The governors of St Mary’s Catholic School have decided that the school will teach the curriculum through the medium of English. We teach Welsh as a second language, and also take opportunities to integrate Welsh into the life of the classroom. Our aim is to develop in our pupils a positive attitude to their Welsh language, heritage and culture.
With the help of the children, the school has developed a Welsh Language Charter; Siarter Iaith.
The 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 social context.
To encourage and inspire our children to use Welsh in all aspects of their lives.
The language charter requires participation from every member of the school community: school council, the pupils, parents, the workforce, governors and the wider community are all encourage to take full ownership of it.
