School Description

Maes Yr Haul Primary School opened in 2001 with 145 pupils. It is now the largest primary school in Bridgend Local Authority (LA) with 542 pupils on roll, aged from three to eleven, taught in 19 mainstream classes, including two for those of nursery age. The school was extended in 2007 to accommodate the growing number of pupils, many of whom join in key stage 1 (KS1) and KS2 with the result that cohort sizes and class structures vary from year to year. The school also houses a resource base of a local special school for pupils aged three to seven, which is subject to separate inspection arrangements; two pupils registered at the same special school also attend mainstream classes at Maes Yr Haul. The school is located on the growing Broadlands estate, which contains a mixture of privately owned and housing association residences. The local population comprises mainly young families which are relatively mobile. Around 5% of pupils are registered as being entitled to free school meals, which is well below the national and local averages. Approximately 23% are identified as requiring additional learning needs (ALN), which is similar to the national average; none has a statement in line with LA policy. No pupils are natural Welsh users. Around 7% come from an ethnic minority background and about 1% receive support in English as an additional language. The school was last inspected in March 2005. A new headteacher was appointed in April 2010. During the inspection the deputy headteacher was on long-term sick leave and her role was undertaken by two key stage leaders acting as assistant headteachers. Two other teachers were also away during the inspection and were replaced by temporary supply cover. The 2010-11 individual school budget per pupil for the school is £2758, which compares with a maximum of £4826 and a minimum of £2758 for primary schools in the Bridgend Authority. The school has the lowest budget per pupil of the 52 primary schools in Bridgend.

Catchment information

01656 642637/01656 642656

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 last 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.
