Staff are particularly effective in delivering lessons that have ‘real life’ purposes that capture the interest of pupils. A vibrant curriculum and structured approach to the development of skills supports most pupils to make good progress during their time at the school. The school engages effectively with parents. This ensures that they have a good understanding of how well their child is progressing and how they can help them to develop their skills at home. Staff know pupils well. They use this knowledge successfully to plan pupils’ next steps in learning and to ensure they incorporate pupils’ ideas and interests well into their planning. Leadership of the school is effective. The headteacher has a clear vision for the school based on high expectations for pupils’ progress. The senior leadership team and other staff share this and work together conscientiously to maintain ongoing improvements to the quality of the school’s provision.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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 (released annually in July).

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.
