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 level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2022. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. 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

Clwyd Community Primary School is on the edge of a large housing estate in Swansea in the Community First district of Penlan, which is socially and economically disadvantaged. Around 92% of pupils live within the 30% most deprived areas of Wales. Approximately 48% of pupils claim free school meals, which is well above the local authority and national averages. Most families live in rented accommodation and pupil mobility is high. The school was built in the 1950s and was originally separate infant and junior schools, but in 1984 these were amalgamated. The site also includes the Swansea Children’s Centre, opened in 2006, which has a Flying Start provision. This feeds the school’s part-time nursery, to which pupils transfer following their third birthday. There are currently 257 pupils in the school aged between three and 11, taught in eight classes, five of which contain a mixed age range. There is also a part-time nursery and four specialist teaching facilities, two in each key stage. These cater for pupils with moderate to severe learning difficulties and for those diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder. The number on roll has increased since the last inspection. The school identifies around 50% of pupils as requiring additional learning needs support, of whom approximately 13%, mainly in the specialist teaching facilities, have a statement of special educational needs. These figures are well above the local authority and national averages. Around 8% of pupils come from an ethnic minority background, most of whom have English as an additional language. No pupils use Welsh as a first language, but a very few speak another European language at home. A very few are looked after by the local authority. The school was last inspected in December 2006. Since then there have been significant improvements to the inside and outside learning environment. The headteacher was appointed in October 2002. During the inspection three teachers, including the deputy headteacher and the key stage 2 co-ordinator, were on long-term sick leave and were replaced by temporary supply teachers. The individual school budget per pupil for Clwyd Primary School in 2012-2013 means that the budget is £4,679 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Swansea is £9,629 and the minimum is £2,634. Clwyd Primary School is 6th out of the 87 primary schools in Swansea in terms of its school budget per pupil.
