All parents and carers are members of the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) when their children start at the school.
The PTA supports the school by holding events and fund-raisers during the year.
2020 Annual Parents & Carers’ Survey
Our annual Parent and Carer survey for 2020 has taken place with our highest ever positive results. We are delighted that so many parents got involved with the survey to tell us what they think about Rhyl and ways in which we can improve. All of this information supports us with our School Improvement Planning for the following year. This year we asked parents questions about school closure to which we had a hugely positive response about the support, care and learning the school has provided during the pandemic.
Comments from the Survey:
‘The school is brilliant in many areas, but the most important thing is that they teach the children to be kind, brave, confident and tolerant with all the different people around them. They teach them to be future responsible adults, sensible and considerate people around them.’
‘The teachers are very supportive’
‘Friendly to all, multicultural and caring’
‘The school always keeps parents informed.’
‘I would like to thank all Rhyl school staff (Head Teacher, office staff, teachers and all the staff in different departments), for the incredibly amazing help they provided to pupils and their families before and especially during this pandemic’
Support for Parents During School Closure
During these challenging times we all know that so much time at home can, at times, be difficult for both parents and children. COVID-19 has added an extra layer of complexity to all of our lives that hasn’t been easy to navigate. At Rhyl, we always want to find ways to support our families in every way possible. With the support of Camden, Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust, have created two videos to support parents during the pandemic. These are presented by child psychotherapist Laverne Antrobus and both videos are clear, short and to the point on how to support you at home.
Connecting Well answers questions such as:
- As a parent, how do you get “me” time during lockdown?
- Has your children’s sibling rivalry taken on serious tones during lockdown?
- How do you support an outgoing / sociable child during this period of isolation?
Coping Well answers questions and gives support regarding:
- Parents, how are you coping under social isolation measures? You may be encountering new parenting challenges, sometimes on a daily basis.
- Finding routine, managing screen time and getting good rest during lockdown
- As a parent, how do you support your child through the grief?
As always, if you need any further support with home learning or life during Covid-19 please contact the school and we will be happy to help.
We welcome anyone who wants to help us to organise and run them and who would like to become involved. If you have any free time and are interested in helping our school, please let us know. There are so many valuable ways in which you can support us.
