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

Llanilltud Faerdref is a happy, caring school at the heart of the community it serves. Pupils enjoy coming to school. They feel safe and well cared for and have a sense of pride in their school. Pupils’ well-being is central to the school’s culture. Staff are highly committed in ensuring that they meet pupils’ well-being needs each day, in order to prepare them for learning. The curriculum provides a broad range of learning experiences and is well structured to ensure that most pupils make beneficial progress in their learning. Pupils benefit from a well-developed forest school area to learn bushcraft skills, such as recognising bird calls and making bird houses. In addition, staff have made good use of the new school build to create authentic learning opportunities and to develop mathematical skills such as area and perimeter. However, pupils do not always develop their independent learning skills well enough. This is because on occasions, teachers over-direct pupils’ learning activities. In addition, in around a half of classes, teachers promote pupils’ problem-solving skills well. However, this good practice is not consistent across the school. Over time, most pupils make good progress from their starting points in most areas of learning. Nearly all pupils develop a real love of mathematics and are keen to share their work and demonstrate their mathematical skills. In the majority of classes, strong teaching supports pupils to develop their reasoning and thinking skills well. However, this is not consistent across the school. Most pupils make strong progress in writing and reading. The development of pupils’ oracy skills is a strength of the school. Pupils with additional learning needs have clear development plans with relevant targets. However, adults do not always implement these plans as well as they could to support pupil progress. Leaders have worked well with stakeholders to create a shared vision, underpinned by the school’s moto ‘Care, share, believe, achieve’. This vision permeates every area of the school and is exemplified by the headteacher, staff and pupils. Leaders have developed worthwhile systems to support strong self-evaluation of school practice, identifying strengths and areas requiring further development. As a result, the school operates smoothly on a day-to-day basis, with a clear focus on wellchosen improvement priorities.
