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

The executive headteacher and senior leaders at Llanishen Fach Primary School provide strong and effective leadership for the school. They encourage staff to experiment with their lessons and try new approaches. They provide them with the freedom and confidence to be imaginative with their teaching. Staff know their pupils well, involve them in planning their learning and make sure that pupils find their lessons and learning activities interesting and engaging. Alongside this, all staff pay close attention to the progress that pupils make in developing their skills, knowledge and understanding. They use their assessments very well to plan future learning. The school’s focus on innovation and impact leads to enjoyable and highly beneficial learning experiences for pupils. This ensures that most pupils make strong progress during their time at the school. The school provides a diverse and interesting curriculum. Many of the activities that staff plan involve ‘authentic’ learning experiences that allow pupils to practise their literacy, numeracy, creative and other skills in real-life situations. Often, these activities link well with people and organisations in the community, such as the local church and businesses. Staff are very good at providing pupils with experiences that combine many areas of the curriculum and improve their sense of well-being at the same time. Pupils are positive about school life and develop strong skills as learners. They think carefully about how well they have completed their work and develop the ability to make their own decisions about what they need to improve. The high quality of teaching, alongside pupils’ self-motivation, means that they make good progress in many areas, such as writing, reading, numeracy and with their creative skills. They make less progress in the development of their Welsh language skills, however. Behaviour throughout the school is exemplary. Pupils show real care for each other and have a strong awareness of issues facing people in their community and the wider world. The school is highly inclusive, and pupils learn to respect and celebrate differences between people and their lives.
