Criw Cymraeg

Criw Cymraeg

Our Criw Crymraeg members for 2023 to 2024 are:




Our Criw Cymraeg aims to encourage our children to:

  • To raise the profile of Welsh across the school
  • To promote bilingualism across the school
  • To promote a sense of pride and belonging to the Welsh culture and nation



We are very proud to be a school in Wales therefore we feel it is important we learn about our language, history and culture.  The Criw Cymraeg helps to facilitate this. Welsh and a sense of ‘Cynefin’ runs through the very core of the new Curriculum for Wales and it is very important that our future generations feel a strong sense of belonging to the Welsh Culture.


Our Criw Cymraeg’s job is to create a culture of Welsh being ‘cool’ in our school in order to encourage and engage pupils with our native language.


Criw Cymraeg should give pupils the experience of:

  • taking ownership of the school’s weekly ‘Sach Cymraeg’ initiative
  • developing the use of Welsh language yard games at break times
  • developing their entrepreneurial skills when creating and selling cards for prominent dates in the Welsh calendar e.g Dydd Santes Dwynwen.


Our Criw Cymraeg should encourage pupils to develop:

  • A sense of ownership over policy and practice
  • A consensus over school issues such as curriculum developments
  • A sense of belonging and understanding of Welsh history and culture



Pupils from Years 3 – 6 submit an expression of interest note/letter in early September and these result in 2 representatives from each year group being elected by their peers.



  • Two representatives from each class
  • Link Teacher - Ms L. Martin
  • Link Support Staff - Mrs Rh. Tucker
  • Link Governor - Mr C. Jones
  • Weekly meetings - Tuesday 12:30pm
