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

At Hafod-Y-Wern Community Primary School, leaders, staff, and governors create an environment where pupils feel safe, make good progress in their learning and access a wide range of engaging activities. Most pupils are courteous and welcoming. They show respect for each other and for staff and engage well in learning. The school’s support for pupils with additional learning needs (ALN), including those in the Resourced Provision, is a strength, enabling nearly all pupils with ALN to make good progress in learning and well-being. In an area of high socio-economic disadvantage, the school ensures that cost is never a barrier to learning. Leaders and teachers provide a rich and varied curriculum, including opportunities for all to take part in a range of sporting and musical activities as well as purposeful and enjoyable visits and outdoor education experiences. The school’s teaching and curriculum meet pupils’ needs well. Teachers plan a broad range of stimulating lessons, often following pupils’ interests. Across the school, pupils are beginning to develop their confidence as independent learners. The youngest pupils develop their curiosity as they explore learning freely indoors and outdoors. Older pupils are beginning to work together in pairs and small groups to solve problems. They respond well to feedback during lessons to improve their work but are less sure about how to improve and maintain the quality of their work over time. Teachers plan valuable experiences that enable pupils to develop aspirations for their future careers, for example through links with the local university. Pupils develop their literacy skills well and make suitable progress in Welsh. Most pupils develop sound mathematical knowledge and understanding. However, teachers do not plan carefully enough for pupils to apply their numeracy skills or to develop their digital skills in authentic contexts at an appropriate level. Leaders and teachers know the school’s strengths and areas for development well. They use monitoring and self-evaluation processes purposefully to identify priorities for school improvement. They ensure that professional development for all staff is suitably linked to school improvement and monitor the impact carefully. Leaders have high expectations for staff and pupils. They focus successfully on improving the quality of teaching and learning across the school.
