Bilingualism

English is the main language of communication, teaching, learning and assessment at Glan Usk Primary School. However the school is committed to promoting the aims and aspirations of the Welsh Government in developing Bilingualism.

In our school both English and Welsh are functional languages. We promote oracy, reading and writing in both English and Welsh Second language in informal and structured situations. Welsh has been given an audible and visual place in and around the school, including school assemblies and concerts, signage and display, Welsh lessons and indoor and outdoor activities.

As a school we therefore aim to:

  • Foster positive attitudes in all learners towards Bilingualism

  • Provide opportunities for children to hear and use Welsh in all areas of their learning

  • Motivate the children to use Welsh naturally, spontaneously and with confidence in all aspects of school life
