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 level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2022. 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

Gladstone Primary School is in the inner city area of Cathays in Cardiff. In 2000, the former infant and junior schools merged to become a primary school. In 2004, the adjacent infant building became the separate St Monica’s Church in Wales School. The majority of pupils come from the surrounding area. Currently there are 266 pupils on roll, organised into seven single-age classes and two part-time nursery classes. Around 32% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is well above the national average. The school has identified around 21% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is broadly in line with the national average. A very few pupils have statements of special educational needs. There are currently a few pupils who are from asylum-seeker families. The school is a multi-cultural community. The largest ethnic group is Asian (38%). Around 24% of pupils are of White British heritage. About two-thirds of pupils speak English as an additional language. There are 19 different languages spoken by pupils, although very few speak Welsh at home. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012. The school was last inspected in 2008. The individual school budget per pupil for Gladstone Primary in 2013-2014 means that the budget is £3,720 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Cardiff is £7,890 and the minimum is £2,856. Gladstone Primary is 45th out of the 96 primary schools in Cardiff in terms of its school budget per pupil.
