Welcome to Year 1 at Rhyl

Follow our latest news and home learning on this page. Work will be posted on this page for your child to complete whilst the school is closed.

Your Safety

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.

You can talk to Childline about anything. Whether it’s something big or small, their trained counsellors are here to support you, the children of Rhyl. You can go to their website using the icon above or call them on 0800 1111.

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) works to protect children today and prevent abuse from happening tomorrow. If you have any concerns about a child’s well-being you can use the icon above to go to their website or call them on 0808 800 5000.

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.

New Class Videos

You now know which class you will be in next year and who your teacher will be! As we cannot do a morning in your new class this year you are going to ‘meet the teacher’ through a video which they have recorded especially for you. Enjoy finding out about your new teacher and you may even have a fun task to do before you start in September.

Classes have been mixed this year so please see the letter sent home to know which class you will be in so you can watch the correct video.

Mahogany Class: Emma Edwards

Sycamore Class: Fernando Fernandez
