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

Coed Eva Primary School is in Cwmbran in the Torfaen local authority. Since September 2016, the school and Blenheim Road Community Primary School have formed the Federation of Blenheim Road Community and Coed Eva Primary Schools. Both schools share the same executive headteacher and governing body. Coed Eva Primary School was last inspected in June 2010 and this is the first inspection of the school since the federation. There are 488 pupils on roll, including 79 nursery pupils who attend the school parttime. There are 16 classes, including three mixed-age classes and one class for pupils with additional needs. About 20% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is similar to the Wales average. The school has 12% of pupils on its register of pupils with additional needs. This is lower than the Wales average. Most pupils are of white British ethnicity and a very few pupils have English as an additional language. A very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The headteacher has been in post since 2009. She became executive headteacher of both schools in the federation in September 2016. The school is currently a pioneer school and is working with the Welsh Government and other schools to take forward developments relating to health and wellbeing. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Coed Eva Primary School June 2018 Summary Pupils’ wellbeing and attitudes to learning are very strong. Nearly all pupils behave very well in lessons and at break times. They are polite, caring and tolerant of the needs of others, and demonstrate high levels of respect towards everyone in school. As they move through the school, most pupils make good progress, particularly in developing their skills in speaking, mathematics and information and communication technology (ICT). The quality of teaching is good and has many strong features. Teachers provide a wide range of exciting and stimulating learning experiences that engage nearly all pupils very successfully. Senior leaders have established a clear vision for the federation. There is a clear leadership structure and all leaders undertake their well-defined roles and responsibilities effectively. Members of the governing body bring a rich mix of skills to their roles and provide purposeful support and challenge to the federation. Across the federation, leaders undertake a wide range of monitoring activities, but not all have strong enough evaluative skills to make specific judgements that support teachers to improve. The bright, airy, purpose-built accommodation provides a very good indoor learning environment. Most staff use the extensive outdoor areas well to enhance learning and to provide exciting and stimulating experiences for pupils.
