Cymraeg Campus

At Pontnewydd Primary School we are working hard on developing our Welsh skills. Our Criw Cymraeg are making sure that children and teachers are speaking as much Welsh as possible at all times.                   


The Cymraeg Campus Language Charter has been created by ERW Welsh in Education officers and is the first charter specifically created to develop Welsh in English medium schools. Cymraeg Campus has been piloted in 25 schools across our consortium with significant impact. The charter consists of three awards - bronze, silver and gold. Schools attempt to complete these awards over a three year period - one each year. Each award comprises of ten targets and these targets become more challenging as you progress from efydd - to arian - to aur.                                 


Below is our school display which is in the Junior hall. It reminds everyone of our Welsh targets and we tick off when we have achieved a point.

Cymraeg Campus Bronze Status - We are extremely pleased that all our hard work has been recognised and we are now a bronze status school for our Welsh Work! Diolch yn fawr pawb ac da iawn i'r Criw Cymraeg! Onward to Silver!
