School Description

Coety Primary School is in the village of Coity in Bridgend local authority. Currently, there are 421 pupils on roll, aged from three to eleven years, including 18 nursery pupils who attend part-time. There are 14 classes, two of which are mixed-age. Pupil numbers have increased considerably since the last inspection when there were 149 pupils on roll. About 6% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is below the national average of 19%. The school has identified around 23% of pupils as having additional learning needs and a very few pupils have a statement of additional learning needs. Most pupils are from a white British background. Around 7% of pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds and 5% have English as an additional language. A very few speak Welsh at home. The local authority looks after a very few pupils. The headteacher took up the post in September 2010. The school’s previous inspection was in February 2011.

They have positive attitudes to learning and treat each other with care and respect. Staff provide interesting learning experiences that motivate pupils to learn, but there are not enough good quality opportunities for pupils in the foundation phase to develop their independent learning skills. There are effective systems for pupils to identify aspects of their work that they need to improve, and teachers provide good quality feedback to help them to succeed. Senior leaders have managed the expansion in pupil numbers and the move to a new building well. They place a high priority on creating a caring community that considers and meets the needs of pupils. They have useful procedures to analyse the work of the school and to identify areas for development, but they do not always identify all areas accurately or involve staff in planning for improvement well enough.

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.
