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

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.
