About Us

Mission Statement At Ysgol Maes Owen we work together to provide the children in our care with an excellent education, whilst nurturing and caring for their needs as they develop and grow. Aims To achieve this, our school aims to develop: • happy, caring and self-disciplined children; • an effective use of language in reading, writing, speaking and listening; • an effective use of mathematical skills, concepts and procedures • an enquiring approach to studying the world around us and a concern for natural beauty and conservation • an appreciation and interest in the arts, physical and cultural activities; • the understanding and use of Welsh and a love of our community, country and culture; • physical and sporting literacy; • all members of the school - physically and intellectually by providing appropriate support for professional development and training needs; • a warm and open relationship with all stakeholders in our school community. School Context Ysgol Maes Owen is a community school, catering for children aged seven to eleven years. The school is situated in Kinmel Bay, an economically mixed urban area and serves the town itself and the outlying areas of Towyn and Rhyl. The school opened in 1950 and is maintained by Conwy County Borough Council. The number of pupils on the roll fluctuates during the year as many newcomers from outside the region are attracted to the area. A significant number of pupils are from areas that are described as socially and economically disadvantaged. 32.6% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is significantly higher than local and national averages. The school is organised into four mixed classes in lower school (Years 3 & 4) and four mixed classes in upper school (Years 5 & 6). In addition, there is a twelve place Special Resource Base provided by the Local Authority (LA) catering for pupils with moderate learning difficulties; this is managed by our Resource Base teacher who is supported by one full time HLTA and one part time teaching assistant. The present Headteacher has been in post since September 2013 (and was previously Temporary Acting Headteacher at the school prior to this from the end of January 2013). The school has a very transient population with 24 joining and 13 leaving during the 2017/18 academic year and 24 joining and 10 leaving during the 2018/19 academic year. Three pupils were given a fixed term exclusion during the last school year 2018- 2019. No pupils attended the Social Inclusion Unit. In 2018-19 there were five pupils who were Looked After Children, (LAC), six under Special Guardianship and two learners who are adopted. 45% of pupils were on the ALN register. 22% were at School Action, 14% were at School Action Plus, 8% were School Action with a Contract and two pupils had a Statement of Special Educational Needs. 19% of the pupils were identified as More Able and Talented for literacy and numeracy. English is the sole or predominant language in all of the pupils’ homes. There were ten pupils for whom English is an additional language. 8 received support teaching in English. Welsh second language programmes of study are taught. Ysgol Maes Owen has achieved: Siarter Iaith Bronze Award (Campus Cymraeg) Eco Schools Green Flag Award (3rd) Healthy Schools National Quality Award ASD Info Wales Schools Award Attachment & Trauma Gold Award
