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.

The last inspection of the school was in March 2013. The headteacher took up her post in January 2016. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Mount Pleasant Primary February 2018 Summary The headteacher has a strong vision for the school that focuses well on nurturing pupils so that they enjoy and succeed at learning. She has high expectations of staff and pupils and has created a strong team ethos among senior leaders, governors and staff. As a result, there is a purposeful atmosphere throughout the school where staff focus effectively on improving teaching and learning. The school provides a wide range of learning experiences that interest and motivate pupils well. Staff have incorporated the four purposes of the new curriculum for Wales into their planning. They have adapted the topics and themes that they deliver to ensure that they provide pupils with purposeful opportunities to learn in real-life contexts. As a result, most pupils concentrate well on their learning and focus effectively on tasks and activities. Older pupils in particular have a mature attitude towards learning. The quality of teaching is good and nearly all pupils make strong progress from their starting points. The school places a strong emphasis on improving pupils’ wellbeing and, as a result, nearly all pupils attend school regularly and most feel safe and happy in the school environment.

Estyn will invite the school to prepare a case study on its work in relation to preparing for the new curriculum for Wales. The school is not part of the pioneer school programme, but staff have worked successfully to develop exciting learning experiences. This is a strength of the school, in particular the involvement of pupils in this work.
