Ysgol y Foryd is a successful infant school catering for about 240 children from Kinmel Bay, Towyn, Rhyl , Abergele and surrounding areas.
The school and grounds have been extensively developed during recent years to provide the very best for our pupils. We have a fully equipped, self-contained Nursery class called Traed Bach. We also have a Nurture class called Dosbarth Seren, eight well-resourced classrooms, a library and an IT suite. We have 16 iPads regularly accessed by our pupils and staff run regular parent courses, including IT sessions for children and adults. We have a range of planned Intervention Groups in school to support and extend our pupils as appropriate. Our school is an accredited Beach School and classes study the local beaches and woodland at least termly. A recent addition is our fantastic new school mini-bus. Pupils learn to swim at the local pool in Rhyl and benefit from the adjacent sports facilities at the Morfa Leisure Centre. An extensive programme of after-school activities and clubs is available and pupils receive Children’s University accreditation for their attendance. We work closely with our neighbouring junior school, Ysgol Maes Owen, and this aids a smooth transition for all our pupils. Our school has a free breakfast club which operates every day and provides high quality care.
Ysgol y Foryd was awarded another Investors in People Award recently during which it was highlighted that:
“The staff team are skilled, enthusiastic and highly motivated.”
We are a constantly improving, forward thinking school. We have gained Healthy Schools and Eco Awards, the Basic Skills Quality Award, Active Mark, Fairtrade School Status and NACE membership.
We are proud of our school’s positive working ethos built upon mutual trust and respect. This is demonstrated through co-operation between children, staff, parents and governors. Our children follow OUR FIVE FORYD VALUES. Our mission is to provide quality education within a happy, caring and secure environment so that pupils have the opportunities necessary to develop to their maximum potential. Our school motto is:
Dreaming, Believing, Succeeding Together
Breuddwydio, Coelio, Llwydio, Gyda’n Gilydd.
We aim to develop in our children a ‘thirst’ for learning necessary for aspiration, hard work and achievement. During their time at Ysgol y Foryd our pupils form lasting friendships and gain happy memories. We consider our partnership with you a privilege and look forward to providing an excellent education for your child.
