Why are we doing this?

The Welsh Government’s national Welsh language strategy Cymraeg 2050: A million Welsh speakers was published in August 2017 with the ambition for reaching a million Welsh speakers by 2050 and to continue to encourage more people to use and speak Welsh in their everyday lives. The statutory education system has a vital role to play in increasing the number of Welsh speakers. There must be a significant increase in the number of school learners who have the opportunity to develop Welsh-language skills in school and the opportunity to use it in their everyday lives in order to achieve this goal.

Every local authority has the statutory obligation to develop and publish a Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) which responds to seven Ministerial Priorities (Outcomes) and explains how they will develop and increase the number of Welsh speakers across the whole education sector.

Wrexham County Borough 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. The WESP also fully supports the aims and objectives within Wrexham Council’s Welsh Language Strategy (2016).

We have a challenging overarching target to increase the number of pupils being taught through the medium of Welsh.  We are proposing a number of actions in order to achieve this target.

The Welsh in Education Forum and its sub-groups, which consists of relevant stakeholders has met during the summer term to discuss, consult and invite comments towards the development of the new cycle draft. 

Regulations state that a consultation of no less than 8 weeks is required before the plan is submitted to the Welsh Ministers for approval no later than 31 January 2022. 

We need your comments regarding our proposed actions to meet our overarching target.

You will need to refer to the consultation document to answer the questions.  Please download the consultation document from this page.

Why are we doing this?

Through Our Wrexham, Our Future, we want to hear about the things which matter most to you, and the changes which you feel would make the biggest difference to the well-being of you, your neighbours and Wrexham County Borough as a whole.

Your views will directly influence the way in which we think about well-being across the county, and the collective actions we can all take to make Wrexham a better place for everyone in the months and years ahead.

Who are we?

Our Wrexham Our Future is being led by the Public Services Board (PSB) for Wrexham, which brings together public bodies across the County Borough, and is made up of:

 

  • Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board
  • Coleg Cambria
  • Department of Work & Pensions
  • North Wales Fire and Rescue
  • Natural Resources Wales
  • North Wales Police
  • Public Health Wales
  • The Association of Voluntary Organisations in Wrexham (AVOW)
  • North Wales National Probation Service
  • Welsh Government
  • Wrexham County Borough Council
  • Wrexham Glyndŵr University

Our role as your Public Services Board is to work with each other, and with the communities of Wrexham County Borough, to make a positive difference to well-being for all. We were formed (alongside other Public Services Boards across Wales) through the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, which also sets out the '7 well-being goals' which are our collective Wales-wide vision.

What do we want to know?

To achieve our goal, of making a positive difference to well-being for all, we develop well-being plans every 5 years, informed by a well-being assessment. Wrexham County Borough’s next Well-being Plan (for 2023-2028) will be published in May 2023. Our Wrexham, Our Future forms a key part of our well-being assessment, and will directly influence the content of our plan.

By completing this short survey, you will help us to better understand how to enhance the economic, social, environmental and cultural well being of the area: from growing new businesses to protecting the environment, and from tackling poverty and loneliness to building a sense of community and pride across the region. It will set the foundations for how we can work together in the future, collectively overcoming the challenges and taking the opportunities, which matter most to each of us.
