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.

School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2022. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

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 Oystermouth Primary School January 2019 Summary Most pupils make good progress in developing their skills as they move through the school. They apply themselves well in lessons and benefit from teaching that stimulates and engages them well. The school provides a high level of care, support and guidance for pupils. Pupils feel safe and valued and they enjoy coming to school. Those with additional learning needs achieve well. Most pupils behave very well and have positive attitudes to their learning. In lessons, most concentrate attentively and are eager to do well. They develop their personal and social skills to a high standard and display respect and concern for others. The acting headteacher has a clear vision for the school and, in a short period of time, she has introduced appropriate strategies to improve provision. However, many leaders in the school are new to their roles and self-evaluation processes are at an early stage of development. Overall, it is too soon to see the full effect of new initiatives and strategies. Governors understand their role and support the school effectively. Inspection area Judgement Standards Good Wellbeing and attitudes to learning Good Teaching and learning experiences Good Care, support and guidance Good Leadership and management Adequate and needs improvement 2 A report on Oystermouth Primary School January 2019 Recommendations R1 Ensure that all leaders and managers monitor, evaluate and plan for improvement rigorously in their areas of responsibility R2 Increase opportunities for pupils to use their Welsh language skills outside of designated lessons, especially in key stage 2 R3 Ensure that teachers’ feedback in all classes enables pupils to understand clearly what they need to do to improve their work R4 Provide more opportunities for pupils to work independently and to make choices in relation to their learning What happens next The school will draw up an action plan to show how it is going to address the recommendations. Estyn will review the school’s progress.
