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

The Dee Valley Federation of schools was formed in January 2014 and consists of Froncysyllte Primary, Garth Primary and Pentre Church in Wales Controlled Primary schools. It is led by the recently appointed headteacher and a team of assistant headteachers at each of the three schools. These senior leaders manage the day to day running of each of their schools and assume responsibility for the operational matters at each school in the headteacher’s absence. Pentre Church in Wales Controlled Primary School is the largest school within the federation and is very much at the heart of its community in the village of Pentre. The caring and community ethos the staff promote is a notable aspect of its work. Pupils are happy and confident in school, and through their relationships with one and other they show kindness and many other Christian values they celebrate. Parents appreciate the support that staff provide for their children and speak warmly of the relationships they have with the school, including with the recently appointed headteacher. Many pupils develop their literacy and numeracy skills well in engaging learning experiences. They enthusiastically share their Welsh language skills, often using the language when they speak with increasing confidence. Across the school, many pupils make good progress in acquiring their digital skills, which they use confidently. During their time at the school, most pupils make suitable progress from their starting points. Although staff at the school know their pupils well, assessment processes do not always support pupils to develop their skills and make sustained progress over time, for example in their writing skills. The headteacher, senior and middle leaders are beginning to have an impact on improving the opportunities for pupils across the federation. They have recently begun to reflect on the school’s provision and consider necessary improvements to be made, for example in mathematics and teachers' assessment of pupils for the next steps in their learning.
