Grangetown Primary School, which serves the Grangetown area of Cardiff, caters for pupils aged 4 to 11-years-old. At present there are 409 pupils on roll and numbers have increased since the last inspection. The school is organised into 14 classes, two for each year group from Reception to Year 6. There are 16.6 full-time teachers, six ethnic minority traveller achievement service support staff and 13.5 teaching assistants. The catchment area is considered to be economically disadvantaged. Baseline indicators show that attainment on entry to the school is below average. Thirty-five per cent of families are in receipt of free school meals; this is higher than local and national averages. Approximately 33% of pupils are identified as having additional learning needs and six have a statement. Ninety-six per cent of pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds with 95% speaking English as a second or additional language (92% of these are at A, B or C stage of language acquisition). This is higher than local or national averages. At the end of key stage 2 in 2010, 98% of pupils were from a minority ethnic background and only 66% of these had been in the school since Year 2. There are no looked after children on roll and there are no pupils who use Welsh as a first language. The school was last inspected in May 2006 with a re-inspection visit in September 2007. Since the last full inspection there have been changes in the management structure of the school. The headteacher has been in post since September 2008. The individual school budget per pupil for Grangetown Primary School is £3046, which compares with a maximum of £19708 and a minimum of £2828 for primary schools in Cardiff. The school has the 95th highest budget per pupil out of the 116 primary schools in Cardiff.

How have we plotted this heat map?

School Guide heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps published by a Local Authority. We are in the process of collecting this data and creating catchment maps for School Guide.

Catchment maps show actual cut-off distances, pre-defined catchment areas and geographical admissions criteria. Until we can provide actual catchment data, we believe our heat maps provide a useful indicator of general admission areas for each school.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of areas likely to admit pupils based on historical data. We explain how this could be helpful below.
  2. Use the link to the relevant Local Authority to find detailed catchment information. Find this link under the school contact details on every school page.
  3. On each school page, use the Website link to visit individual school websites and find information on their admissions criteria.

Methodology of a School Guide heat map

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official school 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). We calculate a likelihood of being admitted to a school from a given area based on this historical data. Areas with a high concentration of pupils successfully admitted to the school are mapped as red (‘Very Likely’), quite concentrated (‘Quite Likely) and less concentrated (‘Less Likely’). This gives a good indication of the area a pupil would need to have lived in to be accepted to the school at the time of the last available data.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. They may mirror circular catchment shapes but do not show actual cut-off distances. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with sibling(s) 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. Small clusters of pupils in rural areas of Wales may not be represented in the data.

Living at a postcode that returns a ‘Very Likely’ rating based on historical pupil data does not guarantee admission to a current or future intake and vice versa for a ‘Not Likely’ rating. A pupil’s location always needs to be considered alongside individual school admissions criteria (e.g. faith schools require pupils to satisfy religious criteria).

School Guide recommends you use the Local Authority link provided on the individual school page (click on The Data tab, above), if you require exact catchment information or contact the school directly (click on The Data tab, above) for individual admissions criteria.
