Welcome to Plum Tree Class
Each morning the children arrive at the Satellite at 9.30am. They are met in the reception by a member of staff and go to Plum Tree class. At the start of each day the children go through their individual timetables, changes to their day are talked about and the children are reminded about their targets and rewards. The children then go to either a mentoring session, their year group class to join a session or work in Plum Tree class.
At 10.15am all the children return to the classroom, where they have breakfast together and talk about various topics of interest. The children join their peers in the playground for playtimes and lunchtimes, as well as joining in when it is their year group’s football or champ days.
As part of the Satellite, the children get to take part in lessons with their year groups as well as fun sessions in Plum Tree class. They are also included in going on class trips, sports activities and fun workshops. At the end of the day all the children return to Plum Tree class, they go through their timetable and reward chart with an adult and count up how many minutes of reward time they have earned that day. They can then choose an activity to do with their friends or on their own. There are lots of things to choose from for reward time. At 3pm we finish school.
At Rhyl the safety and well-being of our children is our utmost priority. As well as support at school, organisations such as Childline and the NSPCC are there to offer guidance and to help anyone under 19 in the UK with any issue you are going through.

Black Lives Matter
At Rhyl, we believe in equal opportunities, empowering our children to use their voices for positive change and to stand up for what they believe in. In support of the Black Lives Matter movement they have created posters to speak out about racism, change and to have a positive impact on both our own community and the wider world.
Thank you to our children for getting involved and for being such wonderful children in our amazing school! We really can change the world if we work together and support each other.
