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 Description

Pupils at Pendoylan Church in Wales Primary School relish attending school. They are eager to talk to adults and speak articulately and with great pride about their school. Most pupils demonstrate high levels of perseverance and positive attitudes to learning, they feel safe and well cared for, and they trust that staff will always support them through difficult moments. Over their time in school, pupils, including those who are vulnerable and those with additional learning needs, make good and often very good progress in most areas of learning from where they started. Pupils have many opportunities to influence and improve their school and are thrilled to work alongside school leaders to bring about change. Pupils' well-being and emotional development are at the heart of the school and staff work tirelessly to ensure that the school is a reflective and inclusive environment. This inclusivity is shown by the encouraging relationships between staff and pupils. All staff think carefully about how pupils learn best and employ a range of methods to involve them successfully in their learning. They show an eagerness to develop their professional skills and knowledge together and within a variety of partnerships well. This enables them to fine-tune provision to best meet individual pupils’ needs. The care, support and guidance provided across the school community are significant and support the school’s vision, to ‘Inspire, Reflect and Transform’. The headteacher provides strong, effective leadership. Governors support the school well and along with dedicated staff place the well-being of all pupils and improving learning at the centre of school life. Partnerships with parents and all outside agencies are effective. Leaders and staff are well on their way to implementing a curriculum that is authentic and reflects the needs of the community. The school is good at identifying areas of its work that are successful and those aspects that need to be improved. For instance, the school’s work to develop pupils’ numeracy skills has been highly effective and led to improvements in its provision and the progress that pupils make. Moving forward, leaders and staff now recognise that creating more opportunities for older pupils to experience outdoor learning along with refining their approaches to providing feedback to pupils will improve pupil progress further.
