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

Llanyrafon Primary is a happy and nurturing school. The headteacher has a clear vision for improving well-being and learning for all pupils and leads a team of enthusiastic teachers and teaching assistants. Leaders, teachers and support staff contribute to a strong sense of belonging and maintain positive relationships across the whole school community. Nearly all pupils enjoy school and speak appreciatively of the opportunities they have to learn and play. The school’s approach to well-being is a significant strength and, in particular, all pupils, staff and families know they will get the emotional support they need. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary and they generally engage well with their learning. As a result, they make good progress in many aspects of their learning. Occasionally, lessons are overly structured and pupils do not have opportunities to make decisions about their learning often enough. This hampers their ability to be creative thinkers and independent learners. Teachers plan learning that enables most pupils to listen, speak and write confidently across the curriculum. They are often highly articulate and especially enjoy reading for enjoyment and for research. Across the school, pupils develop their mathematical skills well. However, they are less confident in using digital devices to support their work and, overall, teachers do not plan enough opportunities for pupils to use their mathematical and digital knowledge often enough in their work across the curriculum. Pupils enjoy working outdoors and teachers plan purposeful activities in the school’s extensive grounds for them to explore nature. Pupils recognise the positive impact these learning opportunities have on their health. The school ensures that pupils have plentiful opportunities to be physically active, not only in lessons but through clubs, visits and playtime games. Nearly all pupils influence the life and work of the school when they take on leadership roles and responsibilities. They confidently make suggestions and plan actions that improve the school day and support the local community. Teachers work with their pupils to plan learning experiences that capture their interests and older pupils in particular are beginning to make suggestions about how they learn and how they record their work. Teachers use a range of approaches to help pupils with their work. They ask questions that help extend learning and provide immediate feedback to support pupils’ understanding and their next steps in learning. Many teachers plan lessons that build on previous learning to enable progress for each pupil. They reflect on their lessons to consider how to improve their practice but do not focus their evaluations closely enough on the impact of their teaching on pupil outcomes in all aspects of the curriculum. Leaders and teachers establish a strong culture of safeguarding. During the inspection, a minor safeguarding issue was brought to the school’s attention.
