School Description

Clytha Primary School is in Newport local authority. There are 240 pupils on roll between the ages of three and eleven, including 31 who attend the nursery on a part-time basis. Nearly all pupils live locally. Approximately 6% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is well below the national average of 21%. The school identifies that around 12% of pupils have additional learning needs. This is below the national average of 19%. A few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. Many pupils are from white British backgrounds. The remaining pupils come from a range of ethnic groups. Around 28% of pupils speak English as an additional language. No pupil speaks Welsh at home. The school was last inspected in 2011. The headteacher took up her post in June 2017. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Clytha Primary School December 2017 Summary The school is a vibrant and embracing community, which fully realises its vision to nurture the talents of all its pupils and staff. The very high quality of care and support provided by staff successfully engenders strong shared values of tolerance, respect and inclusivity amongst all members of the ‘Clytha family’. This ethos directly informs pupils’ very positive attitudes towards learning and supports their development as confident, capable and independent citizens. The school’s rich curriculum provides a wealth of opportunities for pupils to develop their skills across the full range of subjects and gives a well-rounded experience to pupils of every ability. Planning for the development of pupils’ communication skills is highly effective and ensures that pupils with English as an additional language generally perform at least as well as their peers. Teachers and teaching assistants support and challenge pupils effectively and engage their interest strongly so that pupils make good progress and sustain their motivation well. The school is well led by the headteacher. Staff at all levels show commitment to the school and its pupils. They work effectively together to develop the school further as a thriving learning community.

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.
