School Description

Mount Street Infants School is in Brecon, in Powys. There are currently 116 pupils aged four to seven on roll, in six classes. One of these classes is a specialist centre for pupils with special educational needs (SEN). Nine pupils from Brecon and the surrounding area attend this centre. The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is 11%. This is below the national average of 18%. The school identifies approximately 31% of pupils as having additional learning needs, including those in the specialist centre. This is well above the national average of 21%. Around 82% of pupils come from a white British ethnic background. Approximately 14% of pupils are learning English as an additional language. The majority of these pupils speak Nepali as their first language. No pupils speak Welsh at home. Around 19% of pupils come from military service families and start or leave the school at different times during the year. The headteacher assumed her role in an acting capacity in September 2016. She became the permanent headteacher in March 2017. Until recently, the school was working with the Welsh Government and other schools to take forward developments relating to education reform in Wales. The last inspection was in May 2013. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Mount Street C.P.

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.
