School Description

Ogmore Vale Primary School has 359 pupils aged three to 11 years of age. It is situated in the village of Ogmore Vale in the county borough of Bridgend. The school serves the residential area of Ogmore Vale and the surrounding area. In general, the area is neither economically advantaged nor disadvantaged, but 24% of pupils live in a Communities First area which is deemed the tenth most deprived area in Wales on the Child Poverty scale for health. Four pupils are looked after by a local authority. Twenty-eight per cent of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is above the all-Wales and local authority averages. There is no pre-school nursery provision in the school’s catchment area. Around 29% of pupils have special educational needs (SEN). This percentage is higher than both local authority and Wales averages. There are two SEN classes; one is an observation class and the other caters for pupils with moderate learning difficulties, including pupils from outside the school’s catchment area. There are 14 other classes, including one nursery. There are no pupils who speak Welsh as a first language. Four per cent of pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds but none receives teaching in English as an additional language. The 2010-2011 individual school budget per pupil for Ogmore Vale Primary is £3,242, which compares with a maximum of £4,826 and a minimum of £2,758 for primary schools in Bridgend. The school has the 22nd highest budget per pupil out of the 52 primary schools in Bridgend.

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.
