Welsh is taught as a class lesson throughout the School, generally on a daily basis. Pupils are often given instructions in Welsh and are encouraged to use Welsh independently in their everyday work and play. This is encouraged by the school's use of Helpur Heddiw, where children, from Reception onwards, become "teacher" and support their peers in their use of Welsh throughout each day. They learn Welsh songs, prayers, games and about Welsh heritage. Pupils in Key Stage 2 are also assessed on their acquisition of skills in communicating in Welsh. All teaching staff are able to teach Welsh as a second language to the required level.

Year 5 take part in a residential visit to the Urdd centre at Llangrannog, where they are immersed in the Welsh language while also having the opportunity to take part in adventure activities.

The whole School takes part in our Annual Eisteddfod and school visits regularly develop pupils' awareness of the richness of Welsh in our communities.
