School Description

Fenton Primary School is in the Portfield area of Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire. It was formed in 2001 after the amalgamation of Fenton Infants and Barn Street Juniors. The school has just under 400 pupils aged 3 to 11 years on roll, including about 50 who attend the nursery. There are 15 mainstream classes in the school and most are single age classes. There are two special needs units in the school, one for children up to Year 3 and another for pupils from Year 4 to Year 6. The special units cater for pupils with complex needs. About half of the school’s intake comes from economically disadvantaged areas while the other half comes from areas that are neither economically advantaged nor disadvantaged. About 40% of pupils are entitled to free school meals. This is much higher than the average for Wales (21%). The school has identified about 34% of pupils as having additional learning needs. This is well above the average for primary schools (22%). Most of these pupils are at School Action Plus and a few have statements of special educational needs. Pupils’ ethnicity is largely white British (91%); the remainder are mainly Asian or of mixed ethnicity. Twenty-six pupils currently have English as an additional language. No pupil speaks Welsh at home. The last inspection was in February 2007. The headteacher was appointed in September 2005. The deputy headteacher started at the school in September 2012. The individual school budget per pupil for Fenton Primary School in 2012-2013 means that the budget is £3,774 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Pembrokeshire is £5,870 and the minimum is £3,138. Fenton Primary School is 25th out of the 61 primary schools in Pembrokeshire in terms of its school budget per pupil.

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.
