Dear Parents & Carers, Annwyl Rieni a Gwrarchodwyr,

Family Service - We were treated to a fantastic Family Service this morning from Year 4.  They celebrated storytelling and showed a range of talents in doing so.  Many thanks to the pupils, Mrs Baker and her staff for their hard work in preparing.  It was also lovely to see so many parents and relatives join us in the hall. 

Achievers - Students of the Week included Mikolaj, Nathaniel, Alexandros, Oscar, Indi, all of Year 4, Nikos and new pupil Ella.  Charlie had a bravery certificate after his recent eye operation and Georgia a ballet certificate.  Well done all!

Cardiff – The Cardiff crew are very much looking forward to their visit on Monday morning.  Keep an eye out for our tweets as the week goes on!

Pancake Races –These races take place on Tuesday lunchtime at 12 noon.  Sponsor forms have been handed out to interested children today.  Please notify us on Monday if you wish your child to take part and tell them to bring a frying pan and pancake to toss.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Rhos Street School Graded 'Green' Again!

You may well have seen in the news yesterday, that national data was released, regarding the performance of schools in Wales.  We were delighted, proud and honoured to be named as one of the four Denbighshire schools awarded a 'Green' rating.  We have now received this rating for the second year running. Green schools are described as highly effective with a fine track record, having resilience at all levels and self-improving. This accolade is testament to the fantastic teamwork between staff, the efforts of the children and the support of the school community.  The Governing Body wishes to congratulate all involved for their fantastic efforts.

Yours sincerely / Yn gywir,

Cycling Proficiency – A group of our Year 6 pupils followed their Cycling Proficiency course today.  This is a very valuable activity teaching road safety and cycle skills.  Well done to all who took part.  They all received certificates in assembly this morning.

Sponsored Walk – As the weather has been so wet and the local countryside is so boggy, the decision has been made to delay next week's sponsored walk until after half term.

Visit from the Education Minister - We were pleased to welcome Welsh Education Minister Huw Lewis yesterday to the school.  He congratulated us on our academic performance and also spent time with the School Council, fielding questions.  The School Council were congratulated for their work and also for their conduct and engagement.

Achievers - Students of the Week are Emilie, Dean, William, Katie, all of Year 3, Harrison, Demi and Oliver.

Glan Llyn - Year 3 went to Glan Llyn and it was another successful off-site visit.  The children took part in a range of activities and their behaviour was also excellent (apart from the 2am wake up call…) Big thanks to Mrs Bourne and Eira for their care of the children.  See the photos on the Flickr website and twitter feed.

Council re-iterates stance on unauthorised absences from school following national debate

Denbighshire County Council is re-iterating its stance on unauthorised absence from schools, following comments made by the Welsh Government's Education Minister, Huw Lewis earlier this week.

Mr Lewis has written to councils, stating that a decision on whether or not to authorise holidays during term time is at the discretion of individual Headteachers.

Denbighshire has already confirmed to the Minister's office that this is exactly the stance taken by the Council. Headteachers can authorise absences from school, at their discretion, during term time strictly on a case by case basis. However Headteachers agreed a common stance not to approve term time holidays unless in exceptional circumstances.

Letters and leaflets have been issued to parents through the schools, to inform parents of the Council's stance and to encourage greater attendance from pupils, in line with Welsh Government guidance.

Fixed Penalty Notices may be issued if a child has had 10 unauthorised absences from school during term time (without the permission of the school).  If parents /guardians have been given permission from the Headteacher, the absence would be classed as 'authorised'.

Councillor Eryl Williams, Cabinet Lead Member for Education, said: "Our key focus is on engaging with parents and schools, to make sure that we provide a full time education to our pupils.

"Regular attendance at school is vital to the educational well-being of pupils and all schools monitor and track absences.  Parents will be made aware at an early stage if there are concerns about unauthorised absences. It is not about issuing fixed penalty notices as that is very much a last resort - we want to tackle the issue at an early stage before it develops into a problem".

Giggles Bingo - A poster is attached for the forthcoming Giggles Bingo on March 3rd.  Any prize donations would be gratefully received.

Cycling – You may well see Year 6 out and about on the roads next week, taking their Cycling Proficiency course.  Weather permitting!
