Welsh Education Strategic Plan

Flintshire County Council is committed to supporting, expanding and promoting Welsh-medium education within the whole community, increasing the number and percentage of pupils receiving Welsh-medium education in compliance with the Welsh Government’s ‘Welsh-Medium Education Strategy’ of developing learners who are fully bilingual (i.e. fluent in both English and Welsh).

The Welsh in Education Strategic Plan 2017-2020, approved by Welsh Government following consultation, sets out how we will work towards achieving this goal. The plan is attached here in full.

Welsh in Education Strategic Plan consultation 
Section 84 of The School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 requires a local authority to prepare a Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP).

We would like to hear your views on how the Council and its partners aim to achieve each of the seven outcomes in the proposed Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) for 2022-2032.

The results from this consultation will be used to inform our final Welsh in Education Strategic Plan 2022-2032, which will begin September 2022.

The consultation starts on Wednesday 17th November 2021 and ends on Wednesday 15th January 2022.  A copy of the draft WESP is available to download at the bottom of this page as well as a copy of the consultation response form.
