School Description

Llanfaes Community Primary School is near Brecon in the Powys local authority. There are currently 197 pupils on roll aged 4 to 11. There are seven single-age classes. The school shares its site with a pre-school assessment unit and a setting for three-year-olds. The rolling average of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is 7%. This is well below the national average of 19%. The school identifies nearly 18% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is in line with the national average. Most pupils come from a white ethnic background and speak English as a first language. Very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The headteacher took up her post in September 2005. The last inspection was in February 2012. The school is currently a pioneer school and is working with the Welsh Government and other schools to take forward developments relating to the curriculum. 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 Llanfaes C.P. School October 2017 Summary The school provides a happy learning environment for all pupils and staff and standards of wellbeing are excellent. Very strong partnerships with other institutions in the community, such as a local care home, enrich pupils’ learning experiences extremely well. Nearly all pupils, including those with additional learning needs, make good progress in their literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills. They achieve well by the end of key stage 2. An imaginative curriculum engages most pupils in their learning successfully. The overall quality of teaching is good. Nearly all lessons are interesting and build well on pupils’ previous learning. Most teachers’ day-to-day assessment of pupils’ learning is effective, and the new online assessment tool that tracks pupils’ progress through the school is bedding in well in most classes. The headteacher provides strong, effective leadership. Governors provide good support and are beginning to develop their roles as ‘link’ governors. Staff work closely as a team and have a sharp focus on pupils’ wellbeing and the standards they achieve.

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.
