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.

School Description

School Rhosymedre Community Primary School is on the edge of a large housing development, south of Wrexham, between Ruabon and Llangollen. The area was a former Communities First area and faces the challenges linked with social and economic deprivation. There are 243 pupils on roll aged from 3 to 11 years of age, including 30 part-time nursery pupils. Pupils are taught in eight single age classes. Just under 10% of the school’s pupils have joined mid-year, often on managed transfers from other schools. In addition, there is a mixed-age key stage 2 resource provision, providing education for 11 pupils from across Wrexham who have a wide range of additional learning needs. Around 43% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is much higher than the Wales average of 19%. The school states that around 50% of pupils are on the additional needs register, which is much higher than the Wales average of 21%. A very few pupils have a statement of special education needs. Most pupils are white British. About 5% of pupils speak English as an additional language and no pupils speak Welsh at home. The local authority cares for a very few pupils. The school was last inspected in March 2011. The headteacher, who was previously the deputy headteacher, took up her post in September 2011. 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 Rhosymedre Community Primary School September 2017 Summary Rhosymedre Community Primary School is an exceptionally caring and nurturing community that ensures pupils feel safe, secure and happy. The working relationships and high levels of trust and respect between staff and pupils are outstanding. Most pupils make good progress from their starting points, particularly in developing their speaking and listening skills. Teachers plan a curriculum that engages pupils and helps them to become confident, independent learners. The headteacher and deputy headteacher provide strong leadership and a clear sense of strategic direction to the school’s work; both are extremely passionate about the community they serve. They receive strong support from staff who all believe in and work towards achieving the school’s vision.

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.
