School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2020. 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.

School Description

Saundersfoot Community Primary School is located on the outskirts of the south Pembrokeshire coastal resort of Saundersfoot. The school was originally built in 1973 and was remodelled and extended in 1998 and 2010. The school serves pupils between the ages of 3 and 11 from the villages of Saundersfoot, Wiseman’s Bridge, Sardis and the surrounding area. The number of pupils on roll is 298 and this is likely to increase over the next five years. There are eleven classes, including the nursery, five for the Foundation Phase and key stage 1 (KS) and six for KS2. Thirteen children attend the nursery full time and 31 on a part-time basis. They enter the nursery in the term immediately following their third birthday and have broadly average linguistic and social skills. Most have attended a playgroup previously. Around 47% on roll come from outside the designated catchment area. Currently, around 7% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is much lower than national and local percentages. About 17% have been identified by the school as having special educational needs (SEN), and this figure is also lower than national and local averages; none has a statement of SEN. The home language of most pupils is English, although 17 come from homes where English is an additional language. None uses Welsh as a mother tongue. The head teacher has worked at the school since 1988: she was deputy at the school before being appointed head teacher in 1997. The deputy head has been in post since 1998. The school was last inspected in March 2005. The 2010-2011 individual school budget per pupil for Saundersfoot CP School is £3119, which compares with a maximum of £5769 and a minimum of £2995 for primary schools in Pembrokeshire. The school has the 60th highest budget per pupil out of the 65 primary schools in Pembrokeshire.

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.
