Croeso i  Ysgol y Tywyn

Welcome to Ysgol y Tywyn

Dear Parent,

On Anglesey , Ysgol y Tywyn is a unique educational establishment due to the very high proportion of RAF dependants who attend the school. The majority of its pupils come from an RAF background and for the first time this year, a small number of local children have enrolled here.

The core purpose of any school is learning. We see Ysgol y Tywyn as an educational community where learning takes place in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We work hard to create an environment which is welcoming and caring, both important factors for children who change schools on a regular basis. It is important that children quickly develop a sense of belonging and ownership thus ensuring a measure of confidence an stability.

High Educational Achievements are one of the school's trademarks and it is felt that these successes are a direct result of the friendly, caring environment which is fostered here. Happy children learn more quickly and more easily that those who do not feel so secure. In order to fully achieve his/her potential, each child must develop a measure of self esteem and self confidence.

At Ysgol y Tywyn we believe that each child has unique gifts and qualities which the school is responsible for nurturing. Education should enable every child to develop their academic, personal, social, moral and spiritual knowledge, in an environment that values and supports them.

The ultimate aim of any educational establishment must be the development of responsible, informed and empowered young people who see themselves as belonging to and thus having responsibilities towards, the society in which they live.

On behalf of the Staff and The Governing Body, I write to say how pleased we will be to admit your child as a pupil at this school. Entering school for the first time, or changing schools, signals an important step for you and your child. From now on his / her happiness at school and general development will largely depend on a successful partnership between the home and the school.

Yours sincerely,

Jennifer Raffle
Headteacher.

HISTORY

Ysgol Babanod y Tywyn was opened in 1971 to serve the needs of a fast growing RAF Station. Initially it was opened as an Infant's school and children transferred to the local Primary School at the age of 7. However, parents were not happy with this situation.

 In 1995, parents organised a petition requesting a change of age range for the school. This petition was duly forwarded to the Welsh Office and in 1997, permission was granted for Ysgol Babanod y Tywyn to become a fully fledged Primary School and to change its name to Ysgol y Tywyn. An excellent example of parent power prevailing in our democratic society.

In 1997 the school also extended its provision to the Nursery sector. The age group had previously been catered for by a private RAF establishment. However, with the introduction of Nursery Vouchers, it became necessary for the school to provide pre-school education. The RAF kindly offered us the use of its now defunct classroom and play facilities which we were delighted to accept.
The school now teaches children from the age of 3 - 11.

 


Ysgol Y Tywyn has very close links with the RAF which provides the school with the majority of its pupils.

At present 60% of the pupils are from families of military personnel stationed at Valley or civilian personnel working for the RAF.

The RAF Padre visits the school once a week and conducts a morning service.

Key Stage 2 children use the Station gym every Friday afternoon for their P.E. lessons.

50% of the Governing Body of the school are from the RAF community.

The Nursery Class is situated in a building belonging to the station which is shared by the Playgroup and the Crèche.

The school itself is adjacent to the Station Training Centre, Families Club, Hive, Community Centre, NAAFI and is directly opposite the Officer's Mess.

The Station Adventure Playground is next door to the school yard and children use this playground on a regular basis.

The school liaises with the RAF Training Centre on educational initiatives and is grateful for all support provided

A brief history of the School

AIMS

Due to R.A.F., postings, many of the children who attend this school will be here for only a short period of time. Because of this transient way of life, the school's initial priority will be to create an atmosphere which is both welcoming and caring, and which will ensure stability and continuity for all. We firmly believe that children work best in an atmosphere of care and concern and this is reflected in our excellent SATS results which are always well above the national average and also the best in this area.
The educational aims which we wish to promote include:

We shall endeavour to create an environment where each child feels safe and secure, and is respected as an individual. We shall encourage, praise, and ensure some form of success for each child to increase his/her self-esteem.

1. Providing a full opportunity for developing the abilities and interests of the child as an individual, to ensure that each child achieves his/her full potential.

2. Nurturing self-discipline, self-respect and self-confidence.

3. Developing basic skills and the ability to express themselves creatively, across a wide range of fields.

4. Developing inquiring and lively minds, with the ability to question and reason.

5. Nurturing pride in their community and respect for their environment.

6. Encouraging the need for sensitivity and tolerance towards others, the importance of working together and the need to respect moral values.

CURRICULUM

In accordance with the requirements of the Education Act 1986, the Education Authority has formed, and intends to review regularly, a written statement of policy regarding the secular curriculum. The requirements of the National Curriculum will be interpreted in the light of the Authority's present policies and philosophy.
Since 1989 this school has implemented the National Curriculum, in line with the changes brought about by the 1988 Education Reform Act. The National Curriculum consists of 11 subjects and R.E. which all children from ages 5 - 14 must study at school.
These subjects include:- Maths , English, Welsh, Science, Information technology and communication, R.E., History, Geography, Music, Physical Education, Technology and Art.
The Curriculum has recently been reviewed and published in a 'Curriculum 2000' document.

The school is divided into mixed ability classes in the care of one class teacher. Individual teachers who specialise in specific subjects take on the responsibility for that subject throughout the school.

Education is about the development of the whole person, now and in the future. The delivery of the curriculum includes a combination of both subject specific teaching and also cross - curricular projects.
The aim is to try to ensure that the education provided enhances the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of each pupil and that the nature of the complete curriculum is varied, expansive and balanced.
In our recent inspection report, published in January 2001, the registered inspector commented that
"The school offers a curriculum which is of good quality. It is broad and balanced."

Throughout the year, Governors, The Headteacher and Staff appraise their own practice and ensure that the National Curriculum guidelines are followed.

If you have any queries regarding the Curriculum , we would be only too pleased to discuss them with you.

NURSERY

The nursery class is housed in the RAF building, directly opposite the school. We share the facilities with the Crèche and the Busy Bees Playgroup and therefore all three pre-school units are conveniently based on the same site.

We have a rota of parents who help out at the Nursery on a voluntary basis.
Children who attend the Nursery do not wear school uniform.
