FLINTSHIRE COUNCIL ATTACKS WELSH-MEDIUM TEACHING.
Threat to Welsh Language Teaching in Flintshire.
The future of Welsh language schools in Flintshire is under threat.
Of the county’s five Welsh-medium schools, two are directly threatened (with one -Ysgol Terrig in Treuddyn - immediately at risk); the long-term future of the others is in doubt.
Flintshire council intend to cut costs by merging or federating Welsh-medium schools with English-medium schools, putting their identity- as places where Welsh language and culture is taught - in danger.
The Council’s policies will inevitably weaken the provision of Welsh language teaching in the county.
This is against the strategy of the Welsh Assembly; it is against the Council’s own research; and it is against the policies of other Welsh Councils - who are actively engaged in building new Welsh-medium language schools.
We the undersigned call on Flintshire Council to protect and strengthen Welsh-medium provision in the county.
