School Description

Maes y Morfa Community Primary School is situated on the western edge of the town of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire. There are 239 pupils on roll, aged from three to eleven, including 33 nursery pupils. There are eight single-age classes. English is the predominant language for nearly all pupils. A very few pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds and learn English as an additional language. No pupils speak Welsh at home. Around 33% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is much higher than the Wales average of 19%. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. The school identifies around 44% of pupils are on the additional needs register, which is much higher than the Wales average of 21%. A very few pupils have a statement of special education needs. The headteacher, took up her post in September 2017. The school was last inspected in March 2010. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Maes Y Morfa Community Primary School March 2018 Summary The school is a happy, nurturing community where the high level of care and co-operation between staff and pupils contributes well to pupils’ wellbeing. Nearly all pupils enjoy coming to school and benefit from positive working relationships with staff. They are confident in the school environment and are proud of their school and their work. They behave well and have positive attitudes to learning. Pupil tracking is effective and identifies the progress of specific groups and individuals. Over time, many pupils make sound progress and, by Year 6, achieve at least expected standards from their starting points. Pupils’ speaking, listening and reading skills are often strong, but they do not use their writing, numeracy, information and communication technology (ICT) and Welsh language skills well enough across the curriculum. Teachers provide interesting learning experiences that engage and motivate many pupils to succeed. However, although a minority of teaching in the school is strong, the quality of teaching varies too much from class to class. The headteacher’s strong and purposeful leadership sets a clear strategic direction for developing the school. She has quickly established a clear vision for the school based on a commitment to achieving high standards of wellbeing and improving pupil outcomes. She receives purposeful support from all staff, who work well together as a cohesive and effective team.

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 (released annually in July).

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
