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

School Glan Usk Primary School is in the city of Newport. It provides education for 683 pupils aged from three to eleven years old, including 64 who attend the nursery class part-time. There are 22 single age classes at the school. The school was last inspected in 2011. The headteacher took up his post in 2008. The three year average for pupils eligible for free school meals is around 16%. This figure has decreased recently and is now below the Welsh average of 19%. Around 20% of pupils speak English as an additional language. This proportion has increased notably in recent years. Between them, pupils speak 16 different languages in addition to English, although no pupils speak Welsh as their first language. The school has identified approximately 22% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is in line with the Welsh average. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. The school is currently a pioneer school and is working with the Welsh Government and other schools to take forward developments relating to the curriculum and professional learning. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Glan Usk Primary School March 2018 Summary This school has an inspirational, holistic curriculum, which is highly effective in engaging nearly all pupils. This is because pupils want to learn about interesting topics that they have chosen. In addition, teachers’ thorough planning and highly creative teaching ensures that nearly all pupils achieve their best. Adults know and care for their pupils extremely well. They are quick to intervene whenever any pupil may be at risk of falling behind, and ensure that nearly all pupils acquire the skills that they need to succeed in their learning. As a result, nearly all pupils work hard and achieve particularly well. Their attitudes to learning and their behaviour are exemplary. Their standards of communication are very strong. Nearly all are confident and competent mathematicians, and nearly all make highly effective use of information and communication technology (ICT) as a tool for learning. The exemplary provision and high standards are a direct result of exceptional leadership. Teachers and leaders are expert, reflective practitioners who continually strive to improve. In addition, leaders make highly effective use of professional learning to share their school’s successes with others across Wales.
