Criw Cymraeg


Bryncethin Primary School has an active Criw Cymraeg with members from year two to year six. Their role is to promote the learning of the Welsh language in the school.

They also help promote Curriculum Cymreig learning, which teaches everyone to appreciate our Welshness, our Welsh history, heritage and culture.

They meet regularly and plan how they can implement all this in the school.


Bryncethin Primary School is very proud to have achieved the Cymraeg Campus Siarter Iaith Bronze and Silver Award. We are currently working towards our Gold Award.
