School Description

Llanbister Primary School is in the village of Llanbister in Powys local authority. There are 61 pupils between the ages of 4 and 11, organised into two mixed-age classes. The three-year average for pupils eligible for free school meals is around 2%. This is much lower than the national percentage of 18%. A very few pupils speak English as an additional language or come from an ethnic minority background. No pupils speak Welsh at home. The school identifies around 7% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is well below the national percentage of 21%. The headteacher took up his post in September 2018 and the school was last inspected by Estyn in January 2015. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Llanbister C.P. School November 2019 Summary During their time at the school, most pupils develop effective language, mathematical and information and communication technology (ICT) skills. Pupils with special educational needs achieve well against their personal targets. Nearly all pupils are enthusiastic learners who apply themselves to new experiences confidently. They demonstrate positive attitudes to learning and enthuse about the benefits and successes of their school. They show care for each other and demonstrate a great deal of respect towards staff and visitors. The teaching supports pupils’ learning well, and the teachers and teaching assistants care diligently and conscientiously for pupils. They provide pupils and their families with valuable guidance and support throughout their involvement with the school. As a result, pupils feel safe at school. The headteacher and governors have a clear vision to move the school forward. They build sensibly on the school’s strengths and improve areas for development wisely, through purposeful quality improvement processes.

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.
