School Description

Richmond Park Primary School is a community school in the town of Carmarthen in Carmarthenshire local authority. There are 180 pupils between three and 11 years of age on the school register. The school admits pupils to the nursery at the beginning of the term following their third birthday. All pupils start full-time education at the beginning of the term in which they become four. Pupils come from the town and nearby villages. Around 32% of pupils receive free school meals. This is significantly higher than local and national averages. The school has an assessment and observation unit for 12 pupils aged from three to seven. These pupils come from a wide geographical area within the county. They attend the unit for a few terms so that staff can assess their needs, before moving on to other, suitable provision. The school has identified approximately 50% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, including eight pupils in mainstream classes who have statements of special educational needs. This figure is considerably above local and national averages. Eight pupils are looked after by the local authority. English is the day-to-day language of the school and pupils learn Welsh as a second language. Most pupils come from homes where English is the main language spoken, but a few speak Welsh at home. Fifteen per cent of pupils come from ethnic minority groups. Eleven per cent of pupils come from homes where neither English nor Welsh is the main language. The school was last inspected in November 2007. Pupil numbers have decreased slightly since the last inspection, but have now started to increase again. The headteacher has been in post since May 2011. The individual school budget per pupil for Richmond Park Primary School in 2013-2014 means that the budget is £4,315 per pupil.

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.
