Claims children punished for not speaking Welsh at school
CHILDREN'S Commissioner Keith Towler will look into claims that children at West Wales schools are being punished for not speaking Welsh.
Mr Towler has been emailed by a group of concerned parents over incidents at schools in Ceredigion, which allege that one pupil was told to "move to England" while a parent was told to stop reading English books to their child as it was hampering their Welsh learning.
Mr Towler said: "I can confirm that I have been made aware of this issue and that I will be responding to those concerned in due course."
Hag Harries, Ceredigion Council cabinet member for education, said: "We'll be happy to discuss any concerns raised with the person or persons that have set up the website.
"We find it very difficult to believe that the accusations have any basis."
