Welsh language education scheme.

Byline: STEVE BAGNALL

DENBIGHSHIRE has formally approved the authority's Welsh education scheme.

The document looks at the current provision, raising awareness of Welsh education and information for parents.

It also assesses the demand for Welsh medium education, and expanding provision.

Currently there are 15,348 pupils educated in Denbighshire in primary and secondary schools with 18% of its secondary pupils receiving their education in Welsh or bilingually.

Also 5.5% of the county''s pupils with special educational needs receive their education bilingually or through the medium of Welsh.

Coun Eryl Williams, Denbighshire's Cabinet Lead Member for Lifelong Learning, said: "We want all children and young people to leave full time education being competent and confident using both Welsh and English languages."

The scheme will now be sent to the Welsh Language Board for final approval before the document goes live.
