School Description

School Moorland Primary School is in Splott, in the city of Cardiff. It provides education for 462 pupils aged from three to eleven years old, including 64 who attend the nursery class part-time. There are 16 single age classes at the school. The school was last inspected in 2012. The headteacher took up her post in 2008. Around a half of the pupils are of White British heritage. Around 40% of pupils speak English as an additional language. Between them, pupils speak 38 different languages in addition to English. A very few pupils speak Welsh as their first language. The local authority cares for a very few pupils. The three year average for pupils eligible for free school meals is around 43%. This figure has decreased recently but remains well above the Welsh average of 19%. There is a notably high level of pupil mobility. The school has identified approximately 31% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is well above the Welsh average. 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 Moorland Primary School April 2018 Summary This is a happy, inclusive school that welcomes and nurtures all pupils from the community. Pupils’ welfare is at the heart of the school’s ethos. The headteacher’s vision is clearly focused on promoting equality of opportunity for everyone. The outstanding care and guidance that all staff provide supports pupils from many different backgrounds to settle into school and thrive, particularly those whose circumstances may make them vulnerable to underachievement. In addition, leaders have established very close working partnerships with parents, which support pupils’ wellbeing extremely well. The provision in the nursery and reception building is of a particularly good quality. Throughout the school, teachers provide a vibrant and stimulating curriculum, interesting lessons and a wealth of enrichment opportunities, for example in dance, music and sport. As a result, pupils enjoy their learning very much. Most make good progress and develop as confident citizens, with positive attitudes to learning.

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 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.
