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

Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant is a happy and homely school. All staff work together successfully to create a familial, friendly and Welsh ethos. As a result, pupils enjoy attending school very much. The school has a clear vision to develop the curriculum, namely ‘Learning Flows, Future Grows’. This vision supports teachers to provide a rich range of interesting learning experiences that engage and maintain pupils’ enthusiasm and meet their needs successfully. On the whole, teachers’ assessments are valid, accurate and reliable. Teachers’ oral and written feedback helps pupils to know how well they are doing. However, feedback does not always support pupils usefully to identify the next steps in their learning. Pupils develop their basic skills strongly on their journey through the school. They develop as confident mathematicians and have a firm grasp of both Welsh and English. However, they do not refine pieces of extended writing sufficiently to enable them to develop their writing skills further. There is a wide range of opportunities for pupils to contribute to school life through different pupil voice groups. This has had an influence on the school’s work in the community, both locally and more widely, by looking at global events. Pupils show very positive attitudes towards their learning and persevere effectively during their activities. They are extremely polite to each other and to adults. A particular strength across the school is the frequent opportunities to develop a wide range of pupils’ skills through the very effective use of information and communication technology (ICT). Thorough planning ensures continuity and progression in pupils’ experiences through the school. As a result, most pupils develop a wide range of digital skills to a very high standard. On the whole, the school’s priorities derive from leaders’ knowledge of their school. The improvement plan has been reviewed recently and, overall, includes suitable activities to lead to improving the priority areas. However, strategic planning is not always specific or incisive enough.
