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

The pupils at Coryton Primary School enjoy coming to school and take part in lessons and activities with great enthusiasm. Staff know their pupils well and work effectively to ensure that they are happy and safe when they are at school. The school’s support for pupils’ well-being is strong and staff work successfully to cater for pupils’ individual needs and to address any issues or worries that they may have. The school is aware of the challenges that some families may have as a result of deprivation and is working thoughtfully and sensitively to ensure that this does not negatively affect the learning experiences of their children. Teachers plan engaging learning activities that often capture the interest of pupils and make them keen to learn. They include pupils well in the planning of topics, lessons and learning activities, and this is one of the reasons that pupils find their lessons so interesting. However, the activities that teachers plan do not always focus clearly enough on the next steps in pupils’ learning. As well as this, the curriculum does not ensure that pupils build effectively on their previous learning as they move through the school. Generally, pupils make good progress with their numeracy and creative skills but their ability to understand and use the Welsh language is underdeveloped. The leadership structure for the federation is going through a period of change. The headteacher is new to his role, having previously been the deputy headteacher for the federation. Building upon his former position, he has continued to successfully develop positive working relationships with staff and parents across both schools. Leaders and governors are keen to make the most of the advantages of being part of a federation, for instance by using existing strengths in one provider to make improvements in the other. They are aware that leadership responsibilities are not distributed equally or effectively enough at the moment and that too many important areas are currently overseen by the headteacher in addition to his wider strategic role.
