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.

This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

School Description

Clase Primary School is a community primary school situated one mile from the town of Morriston, and three miles north of the city of Swansea. There are currently 311 pupils on roll, including 36 part-time pupils in the nursery. The school has 12 classes and four specialist teaching facilities for children with autism and moderate learning difficulties. The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is 55%. This is well above the average for Wales of 18%. The school identifies 50% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is well above the national average of 21%. Currently, 11% have a statement of special educational need. Many of these pupils are in the four specialist teaching facilities, with only a few in mainstream classes. Very few pupils come from a minority ethnic background. Very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The headteacher has been in post since September 2010. The school’s last inspection was March 2011. 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 Clase Primary School March 2019 Summary The school is an extremely caring and inclusive community that supports pupils exceptionally well. Pupils’ behaviour in classes, in and around the school is exemplary. Nearly all pupils speak with exceptional pride about their leadership roles and the difference they make in the school community. Nearly all pupils feel they have a very strong voice and have a say in decision making. This has a very strong impact on the physical and emotional wellbeing of the pupils. During their time at the school, many pupils make strong progress from low starting points and develop effective literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills. The school benefits from extremely strong leadership. The headteacher sets a clear strategic direction for developing the school to its full potential. She works with the senior leadership team to set very high expectations for the school’s work. Arrangements to share these expectations with the school community are successful in supporting pupils to thrive at school. Arrangements to develop staff professionally have a very positive impact on pupils’ progress and wellbeing.
