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

Pupils at Crindau Primary School are polite and helpful. They happily talk to adults about why they like coming to school and generally feel safe and cared for. During their time in school, pupils, including those in the learning centres, make good progress in most areas of learning. They enjoy opportunities to get fit and take calculated risks in the outdoors as well as finding moments of calm in their busy day. They enthusiastically describe the learning that excites them. Pupils' well-being is at the heart of the school, and staff work hard to create a strong sense of community. This is evident in the positive relationships between staff and pupils. Staff worked exceptionally hard to maintain relationships between school and home during the pandemic, showing care and commitment to families in the local area. Teachers are beginning to listen to pupils’ ideas about what they want to learn. They are improving the range of learning experiences on offer to make them more relevant to pupils’ interests and needs. Pupils respond well to these opportunities, display curiosity and maintain their enthusiasm. However, where the planned learning experiences are less engaging, pupils find it difficult to maintain focus and their progress is hampered. All staff are developing their professional skills and knowledge. This enables them to maintain a purposeful ethos for learning focused on improving pupils’ literacy and numeracy skills. The headteacher, along with the school leadership team, has a strong vision for the school. With a clear sense of direction, leaders plan school improvements that meet the needs of their learners. They work well with the wider school community to bring about change. Leaders and teachers are beginning to develop a curriculum that fosters thought and creativity. They review the school’s work regularly to evaluate the quality of improvements. These arrangements, together with opportunities for teachers to trial approaches based on their own research, have a positive impact on pupils’ independence and collaboration. Monitoring activity does not always pick up on key areas for improvement, such as ensuring that all teaching is successful in engaging pupils.
