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 Dee Valley Federation of schools was formed in January 2014 and consists of Froncysyllte Primary, Garth Primary and Pentre Church in Wales Controlled Primary schools. It is led by the recently appointed headteacher and a team of assistant headteachers at each of the three schools. These senior leaders manage the day to day running of each of their schools and assume responsibility for the operational matters at each school in the headteacher’s absence. Froncysyllte Primary School is a calm and safe environment where pupils feel happy and secure as part of a small family community. All staff know their pupils well and work well together to support their social, emotional, and academic progress. For example, pupils from Ukraine have recently arrived at the school and staff and pupils have welcomed them into the family at Froncysyllte and ensured that they have settled well into school life. Most pupils make sound progress across the school, including those with additional learning needs (ALN). Pupils are developing good literacy and numeracy skills and are beginning to use these well across different subjects and activities. A particular strength of the school is how well staff develop pupils’ creative skills. They provide many engaging opportunities for pupils to use and apply their artistic skills across their topics. Pupils are developing their voice within the school, for example as ‘tech heroes’ or being a ‘maths whizz’. Staff in the school are working well together to trial new approaches to the curriculum as they move towards the Curriculum for Wales. They are beginning to develop interesting themes that are strongly influenced by pupils’ ideas. Teachers work hard to design learning opportunities that are purposeful and creative, and are beginning to link skills and knowledge across different areas of learning. While these approaches are still developing, at times the topics that pupils choose do not always allow the curriculum to fully reflect the cultural heritage and diverse nature of Wales. Teachers and support staff provide good support to all pupils in lessons. In each class there is a strong culture of kindness and respect for others, which staff encourage through a gentle but firm approach. Teachers use positive praise regularly both in their verbal feedback and when marking pupils' work. However, questioning and feedback do not always challenge pupils to think deeply enough about their learning and how they can make their work better. Often, pupils do not have sufficient opportunity to redraft their work and improve its quality. The headteacher, senior and middle leaders are beginning to have an impact on improving the opportunities for pupils across the federation. They have recently begun to reflect on the school’s provision and consider necessary improvements to be made, for example in mathematics and teachers' assessment of pupils for the next steps in their learning.
