This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the Pupil Level Annual School Census collected by the Welsh Government. The data tells us where pupils lived at the time of the last Pupil Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

School Description

Staff at Adamsdown Primary School create a warm and welcoming place where its diverse school community thrive. Pupils are ambitious, respectful and very happy. They settle into school quickly, love learning and benefit greatly from the school’s highly effective approach to language acquisition. With a significant proportion of pupils coming from countries affected by conflict, the school’s School of Sanctuary status is firmly at the heart of its work. Teachers, leaders, support staff and governors are committed to providing the support each pupil needs to access the curriculum, beginning with well-being and emotional support. The strong partnership with parents and nurturing ethos of the school ensure that all pupils feel safe and develop a strong sense of belonging. The school’s effective partnerships with its community also contribute to its success in supporting pupils’ well-being and providing an engaging curriculum. Throughout the school, pupils make very good progress in most aspects of their learning. They are highly involved in choosing what and how they learn and, by the end of their time at the school, they develop a sophisticated understanding of their progress, and can explain clearly what, how and why they learn the concepts they cover. They relate their learning to the paths they will follow in future, building on the authentic learning opportunities teachers plan and the wide range of valuable experiences they encounter. The thoughtful approach to meeting pupils’ individual needs improves their life chances and raises their aspiration. The school’s work on human rights and relationships provides pupils with a comprehensive understanding of equity, justice and empathy. Pupils develop their knowledge of their locality and the heritage and culture of Wales well, but opportunities for them to use the Welsh language regularly to improve their skills are limited. Leaders support all staff to continuously develop their professional knowledge to improve their practice. This is a strength of the school and, as a result, staff make valuable contributions to the continuous improvement and effective evaluation of the school’s work. Although they share their work with partner schools, leaders do not yet share their approach to curriculum development more widely to support other schools with this important reform.
