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

Llangyfelach Primary School is a calm and supportive environment where pupils feel happy and safe. Staff work hard across the school to provide pupils with the support they need in their work and their emotional and social development. For example, the ‘Turn Your Frown Upside Down Club’ has a positive impact on well-being and is a firm favourite of many pupils across the school. Most pupils make good progress across the school, including those with additional learning needs. There is a strong focus on developing literacy and numeracy in all classes, particularly following the pandemic, and teachers and support staff work well together to make sure pupils achieve well in using these skills. However, standards of handwriting across the school are too variable and pupils do not always present their work well enough. Leaders and staff are thinking carefully about the school’s curriculum and are beginning to develop interesting themes that encourage curiosity and link pupils’ learning in different subjects together. These approaches are at an early stage of development and opportunities for pupils to be creative and understand the cultural diversity across Wales are more limited. Teachers generally understand the needs of their pupils well. They use questioning effectively to encourage pupils to think about their learning and provide effective feedback, which pupils act upon to make their work better. Where improvement is required, teachers need to help pupils develop a clearer understanding of what they are trying to achieve and how best to go about their work. Pupils are developing a strong voice within the school. They have opportunities to influence what they learn through their pupil groups, all of which are linked to areas of the school’s curriculum. In each class, pupils are encouraged to be curious and express their ideas when working with their teachers to plan learning activities in class projects. The headteacher has a strong vision for the school and is well supported by senior leaders and staff in moving this vision forward. For example, the school has created useful learning journals that reflect the school's values, which are beginning to support pupils in becoming more independent in their learning. Governors and leaders across the school work very well together to identify priorities for improvement. A strength of the school is the involvement of almost all staff and a range of pupils within this process.
