School Description

Corneli Primary is in the village of Corneli near Bridgend. The local authority is Bridgend County Borough Council. Corneli Primary shares its site with a Welsh-medium primary school and Corneli Children’s Centre. Corneli Primary caters for 310 pupils aged three to11, which includes 10 mainstream classes and a key stage 2 special educational needs learning resource base for 14 pupils with moderate learning difficulties aged from seven to 11 years. Around 33% of the pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is above the average for primary schools in Wales. The school has identified about 32% of pupils as having additional learning needs. This is also above average for Wales. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. Nearly all the pupils come from English-speaking homes and there is no pupil who speaks Welsh as a first language. The current headteacher took up post in September 2012. The school was last inspected in 2008. The individual school budget per pupil for Corneli Primary School in 2013-2014 means that the budget is £3,241 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Bridgend is £4,608 and the minimum is £2,795. Corneli Primary School is 32nd out of the 50 primary schools in Bridgend in terms of its school budget per pupil.’ 1 A report on Corneli Primary School June 2014 Summary The school’s current performance The school’s prospects for improvement Adequate Adequate Current performance The school’s current performance is adequate because: • many pupils make good progress in reading as they move through the school; • most pupils speak confidently, listen attentively and adapt their spoken language appropriately to informal and formal situations; • the behaviour of most pupils is good; • most pupils feel safe; • most pupils eligible for free school meals pupils make good progress in relation to their individual targets; • the school is a fully inclusive community, which treats all pupils equally and with respect; and • the provision for pupils with additional leaning needs is good. However: • many pupils do not write enough extended pieces of work; • many pupils do not make consistent progress in mathematics across the school; • provision for the development of skills across the curriculum is not consistent, particularly for more able pupils; and • a significant minority of teachers do not always provide challenging and engaging activities for all pupils.

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.
