Welsh language planning in education

Newport's Welsh Education Forum (WEF) is a partnership between Newport City Council, our maintained schools, and other partners with an interest in Welsh education in Newport.

The group supports the implementation of Newport's Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) (pdf) which relates to Welsh Government's Welsh Medium Education Strategy.
