Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) 2022-32

The Welsh in Education Strategic Plan (WESP) explains our ten-year plan for Welsh medium and Welsh language education in the Vale.


We want to increase the number of Year 1 children taught through the medium of Welsh to 24% by 2031-32. This means we will need to make around 390 Year 1 places available by 2031-32 based on current population projections.
