Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Bedlinog Community Primary School April 2019 Summary Bedlinog Community Primary School is an inclusive community where almost all pupils feel safe and happy. The school’s caring ethos ensures that pupils and staff feel valued and promotes respect and equality successfully. The strong working relationship that exists between pupils and staff ensures that most have a positive attitude to learning. The staff also have a purposeful relationship with parents and other members of the community. This strengthens the values, care, support and guidance it gives its pupils and provides them with rich and relevant learning experiences that enhance the provision and promotes the heritage and culture of Wales successfully. The positive learning environment encourages pupils to take pride in their work and to contribute appropriately to school life. Most teachers plan engaging activities for pupils that sustain their interest and enjoyment in learning and often adapt their planning successfully to encompass their ideas and interests. Following a period of considerable instability in terms of senior leaders, the school now benefits from strong leadership. The acting executive headteacher, staff, pupils and governors have worked successfully together to develop a clear vision that has the full support of the school community.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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 (released annually in July).

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.
