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

Bryn Celyn Primary School gives its pupils a strong start in life. Leaders, staff and governors work very effectively in partnership with parents, the community and Cardiff local authority to help pupils develop the skills and values they need to be successful throughout their lives. Even though the pandemic has led to many challenges for the school and its community, the progress most pupils have made in their learning this year, is impressive. Most pupils are eager to learn, behave very well and have clear views about what they want to achieve when they are older. They work hard in school, persevering to meet the challenges their teachers set them. Most learning is purposeful and motivates pupils to apply their literacy, numeracy and digital skills effectively through topics that they help to plan. Staff keep a careful watch over how well each pupil is progressing in their learning and well-being. When needed, they provide valuable extra support that improves pupils’ skills and raises their self-esteem. The headteacher provides strong leadership. Working with a dedicated team of teachers and support staff, she makes sure that families and pupils are treated with care and respect. Pupils feel safe in Bryn Celyn and know that adults act in their best interests. Since the school’s last inspection, leaders have been very successful in driving improvements to many important aspects of its work. They use monitoring processes well to check that staff across the school have consistently high expectations for pupils’ learning. Leaders also evaluate whether the actions the school takes make a difference to pupils. For example, they recognise the need to continue to improve pupils’ writing skills. Governors are knowledgeable about the work of the school. They know the community well and are very supportive of the school’s actions to raise pupils’ aspirations and strengthen their attitudes to learning. Currently, governors do not ensure that there are effective arrangements to promote pupils’ healthy eating and drinking.
