The school meals are prepared on site and are served daily at a cost of £2.85 for  juniors. All infant children are entitled to a free school meal.

The school requires parents to pay using the Parent Pay app.

Parents of pupils with dietary requirements are requested to inform the school prior to the child starting to have school dinners.

Application forms for the provision of free school meals for junior children are available on the Conwy County Borough website.

To help busy families, children may take meals on an infrequent basis provided they are paid for in advance alternatively they can bring sandwiches.

Who should I contact if I have a complaint or a concern

Although we strive to maintain a happy, open-door atmosphere at school, regrettably, complaints and concerns do sometimes arise.

Should you have a complaint, your first port of call should be your class teacher. However the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher are available for more formal complaints should they occur.

In accordance with the Education Reform Act 1988 we have established a three stage complaints procedure in relation to a broad and balanced curriculum, religious education and collective worship, implementation of the National Curriculum, exceptions or withdrawals from the National Curriculum, the operation of a charging policy and the provision of information.

A copy of the school’s Complaints Policy can be provided on request.

I want to take a family holiday during term time. Can I?

In term time, parents do not have an automatic right to withdraw pupils for holidays. Each request for holiday absence will be considered individually and will only be granted at the discretion of the headteacher under exceptional circumstances.

Schools will take into account the age of the child, the time of year proposed for the trip, the nature of the trip and the overall attendance pattern.  Pupils with attendance of less than 96% will not be given permission to take holidays during school time.

What should I do if my child is unable to attend school?

Regular attendance is essential if your child’s progress is to be maintained.

Should your child be absent at any time please phone in on the first morning of absence and send an explanatory note on your child’s return to school. Any absences not explained will be recorded as unauthorised. In the case of infectious disease, these should be notified as soon as possible. For a dental/medical appointment please inform the teacher by letter and arrange to collect the child from school.

How are children disciplined at Ysgol Llandrillo-Yn-Rhos?

We want every member of our school to feel valued and respected and for all persons to be treated fairly. We are a caring community, whose values are built on mutual trust and respect.

We want our children to develop a clear view of right from wrong and to feel safe, secure and valued. Good behaviour is of great importance to us.

Pupils are disciplined using our Positive Behaviour Policy.  Our school rules are ‘Respect Ourself, Respect Each Other, Respect Our School’. Pupils are frequently reminded of these by all staff at appropriate times. Everyday misdemeanours are dealt with by the staff. More anti-social behaviour is reported to the headteacher and parents contacted if necessary.

The school’s Positive Behaviour Policy is available from the headteacher. The school’s anti-bullying policy can also be accessed through the school website.
