School Description

St Illtyd's Primary School is situated in Llanilleth, near Abertillery in Blaenau Gwent. The school opened in September 2004 after the amalgamation of three primary schools. The school is at the heart of a major community regeneration project. Most pupils come from the local communities. A significant proportion of pupils are transported to school by bus from Brynithel, a more remote housing estate consisting of pre-fabricated houses, situated on a mountainside. The school and surrounding areas have significant levels of deprivation. Around 45% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is well above the local and national averages. The school caters for pupils from three to eleven years of age. There are 201 pupils on roll, including 35 children who attend the nursery in the mornings. Children enter the nursery the term following their third birthday. Around 98% of pupils are of white ethnic origin and all speak English at home. No pupils speak Welsh as a first language. Twenty-seven per cent of pupils are on the school’s register of additional learning needs, which is above the national average. Eight pupils have a statement of special educational needs. A very few pupils are ‘looked after’ by the local authority and three pupils speak English as an additional language. There are seven full-time teachers, including the headteacher who was appointed in September 2004. The school was last inspected in March 2006. The individual school budget per pupil for St Illtyd's Primary School in 2011-2012 means that the budget is £4,201 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Blaenau Gwent is £5,429 and the minimum is £3,194. St Illtyd's Primary School is 10th out of the 27 primary schools in Blaenau Gwent in terms of its school budget 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.
