School Description

Carreghofa Primary School is in the village of Llanymynech, on the border between Powys and Shropshire. There are currently 103 pupils aged 4 to 11 on roll, in four classes. The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is around 9%. This is well below the national average of 18%. The school identifies 15% of pupils as having additional learning needs. This is below the national average of 21%. Most pupils come from a white ethnic background and speak English as their first language. Very few pupils speak Welsh at home. About 3% of pupils are learning English as an additional language. The headteacher took up her post in April 2013. The last inspection was in November 2011. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Carreghofa C.P. School March 2019 Summary The school is a nurturing community where teachers and support staff know individual pupils very well and meet their social and emotional needs effectively. As a result, nearly all pupils display high levels of wellbeing. Pupils of all ages and abilities undertake roles on numerous pupil committees and have a strong voice in the school’s life and work. The school provides an interesting curriculum for pupils and there are increasing opportunities for pupils to follow their own interests. As a result, most pupils enjoy learning, make good progress from their starting points and achieve well by the end of key stage 2. Most pupils use their speaking and listening, reading and information and communication technology (ICT) skills confidently in their work across the curriculum. The headteacher has a clear vision for the school, which she communicates successfully. The governing body supports and challenges the school well. Teachers and teaching assistants have a secure knowledge of their roles and responsibilities and carry them out effectively. They collaborate productively with colleagues in other local schools to introduce and develop new curriculum initiatives.

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.
