School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2019. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

School Description

Drury Primary School is situated in the village of the same name on the outskirts of Buckley in Flintshire, about six miles from Chester. It serves the village and surrounding rural area, although a few pupils come from further afield. It was opened in 1974. According to the school, pupils come mainly from homes that are neither highly prosperous nor economically disadvantaged. Around 8% are entitled to receive free school meals, which is well below the local authority and national averages. The full range of ability is represented on entry, similar to the local authority. There are currently 141 pupils on roll, aged three to eleven, taught in five mixed-age classes, including 18 part-time children of nursery age. The number on roll has steadily increased since the last inspection. There are five full-time and two part-time teachers, including the headteacher. Around 21% of pupils are registered as requiring additional learning needs support, which is similar to the national average; one has a statement. Two pupils come from an ethnic minority background. No pupils use Welsh as their first language, receive support for English as a second language or are looked after by the local authority. The school was last inspected in January 2006. There have been a few staff changes over the last six years, including the appointment of a new deputy headteacher in 2010. The individual school budget per pupil for Drury Primary School in 2011-2012 means that the budget is £3070 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Flintshire is £10075 and the minimum is £2616. Drury Primary School is 54th out of the 76 primary schools in Flintshire in terms of its school budget per pupil.’ 1 A report on Drury C.P.

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.
