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

St Andrew’s Primary School is on the east side of Newport. It was established in April 2014 following the amalgamation of St Andrew’s Infants and St Andrew’s Junior School. The school currently has 603 pupils, including 66 part-time pupils in the nursery. Pupil numbers have almost doubled over the past four years, mainly as a result of a new housing development. The school has two learning resource bases that draw pupils from an area larger than the school’s catchments and includes 16 pupils with a range of severe learning needs. All pupils have equal access to the National Curriculum. About 39% of pupils are eligible for free school meals which is significantly higher than the national average (21%). About 36% of pupils are from an ethnic minority background. Of these, almost half are new to English with a significant number having arrived at the school since September, 2015. English is the main language of communication in the school and Welsh is taught as a second language. The school has identified 35% as having additional learning needs, which is above the national average of 22%. Twenty-three pupils have a statement of special educational needs, including those within the two learning resource bases. There are a very few pupils at the school who are looked after by the local authority. The headteacher was appointed in April 2014. The individual school budget per pupil for St Andrew's Primary School in 2015-2016 means that the budget is £3,555 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Newport is £4,827 and the minimum is £2,734. St Andrew's Primary School is 13th out of the 44 primary schools in Newport in terms of its school budget per pupil.
