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 Severn Primary enjoy coming to their school. They feel safe and cared for in an environment that supports equality and inclusion for all. Here, pupils benefit from a wide range of experiences that prepare them to become adults active in today’s society. The headteacher leads with professionalism and compassion. Governors support leaders well. They have a good understanding of their roles and responsibilities. They manage spending diligently and strive to maintain a robust culture of safeguarding. They are working with school leaders to develop their understanding of school improvement. A team of senior leaders ably assist the headteacher and together they monitor the progress of pupils and the quality of teaching and learning appropriately. However, they do not always address important areas in need of development such as the quality and impact of feedback or supporting pupils to become independent learners. Leaders and staff develop good relationships with parents, who value the care and guidance the school provides for their children. Staff know pupils well and create warm and supportive working relationships with pupils. As a result, nearly all pupils behave well in classrooms and at breaktimes, settling quickly into their lessons. Staff use effective questioning in their teaching and many teachers plan stimulating lessons with clear learning objectives. These lessons enable pupils to make good progress in their learning from their various starting points, particularly in literacy and mathematics. However, there are limited opportunities for pupils to apply their numeracy knowledge and skills across the curriculum or to develop their digital skills. Staff at the school are beginning to develop a curriculum for their pupils that reflects the local community, the wider history and culture of Wales and addresses global issues. Many pupils develop skills well over time and benefit from the support they receive from staff. Pupils enjoy the wide range of visits that enhance their curriculum and they value the extra-curricular activities staff provide. They have suitable opportunities to make decisions that influence the wider life of the school, particularly around children’s rights.
