Welsh in Education Strategic Plan 2022-2032

As part of the Cymraeg 2050 initiative, the Welsh Government wants to have 1 million Welsh speakers in Wales by 2050

To meet this target the council wants to increase the number of pupils who learn through the medium of Welsh.

The 10 year plan is ambitious and demonstrates Newport’s commitment to expanding and embedding use of the Welsh language across the city.

The approved plan will run from September 2022 to August 2032.
