» Language Policy
The aim of the school is to ensure that all our pupils are fluent in both languages, Welsh and English, orally and in writing.
Ysgol Bro Preseli is currently a Category 2A Bilingual school.
The description of a category 2A school is ‘At least 80% of subjects apart from English and Welsh are taught only through the medium of Welsh to all pupils’.
All subjects are offered through the medium of Welsh but pupils will be provided with a choice of Welsh or English language when studying Science at secondary school age.
We will discuss carefully with you which stream will be more suitable for your child.
Welsh is the administrative language of the school in respect of internal announcements, internal information, school assemblies etc.
All extra-curricular activities are also conducted through the medium of Welsh.
In addition, pupils are expected to speak Welsh to each other outside of the classroom.
We insist on this in order to ensure that all pupils become fluent in Welsh by the time that they leave school.
All external communications that you receive from the school will be bilingual – in Welsh and English.
School reports on pupil progress will be sent to parents in Welsh unless parents make a request to receive them in English.
We expect parents who send their children to Ysgol Bro Preseli to be enthusiastic for their children to pursue their learning through the medium of Welsh.
A positive and supportive attitude towards bilingual and multilingual education is essential.
