Links to Children's Rights

Language Literacy and Communication enables children and young people to experience their rights of cultural participation (particularly Articles 14, 15, 30 and 31) and also their participatory rights around freedom of expression, understanding information and decision making (Articles 12, 13 and 17).




The Languages, Literacy and Communication  Area of Learning and Experience  addresses fundamental aspects of human communication. It aims to support learning across the whole curriculum and to enable learners to gain knowledge and skills in Welsh, English and international languages as well as in literature.


The four statements that express what matters in this Area should be addressed holistically. This means that different languages should be explored in relation to one another, so too the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. It also means that learning about and through literature should be seen as contributing to all aspects of learning about languages. 


What Matters in Languages, Literacy and Communication 

1. Languages connect us.

2. Understanding languages is key to understanding the world around us. 

3. Expressing ourselves through languages is key to communication.

4. Literature fires imagination and inspires creativity.
