Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. 1 A report on Nant Y Parc Primary School December 2019 Summary Throughout their time at the school, nearly all pupils make very strong progress in developing their literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills. Nearly all pupils are conscientious and confident learners with strong independent working skills. They talk proudly about their school and describe it as a very caring and welcoming community. They enjoy school activities and nearly all conduct themselves well during lessons and at playtimes. Across the school, most teachers plan highly imaginative and stimulating lessons that spark pupils’ interest and engage them extremely well in their learning. Strong working relationships between staff and pupils are very positive and constructive. The school has provision of high quality to support pupils’ emotional health and wellbeing. The headteacher provides innovative, strong and caring leadership with effective support from the deputy headteacher and the senior leadership team. They have a clear vision for the school, which focuses strongly on pupil and staff wellbeing and creating a highly effective learning organisation. Governors know the school very well and play a key role in setting a positive strategic direction for the school.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
