There are 179 pupils aged three to eleven years at the school, including 22 pupils in the part-time nursery class. There are six mainstream classes of mixed age groups. Approximately 12% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is much lower than the national average. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. Nearly all pupils are of white British ethnicity, with a very few pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds. No pupils speak Welsh as a first language at home or have English as an additional language. The school has identified around 14% of pupils as having additional learning needs. This is well below the average for Wales. There have been no fixed-term exclusions in the last year. The last inspection was in March, 2009. The current headteacher took up the post in July 2011. The individual school budget per pupil for St. Robert's Roman Catholic Primary School in 2014-2015 means that the budget is £3,321 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Bridgend is £4,735 and the minimum is £2,926. St. Robert's Roman Catholic Primary School is 25th out of the 49 primary schools in Bridgend 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.

St. Robert's Rc Primary Reviews

Average Rating:


“Highly recommended”
My eldest daughter went to St Robert's - she is now 21 - and my youngest, who is now 10, started here in the nursery class. The school has a solid foundation built with parents and children. It has a warm welcoming atmosphere, the teachers are outstanding and will go out of their way to help and support parents with their child's development. They have mixed classes of age groups, and when this was first announced, I thought it was a little worrying. However, I can say the worry passed quickly when my daughter who had been with one teacher for two years due to the extra support she needed with her learning developments tcame home and expressed that she no longer felt out of place. The teachers put so much hard work into their classes and every child is treat equally. The school has strong values which shows in the way the children conduct themselves. I would recommend the school in a heartbeat, thank you to Mrs Bevridge and her teaching army.
“An Amazing School!”
An amazing school with hard working and dedicated staff. Each child is valued and important and there is a real community feel to this school. Children are always well behaved and polite. My children have developed in every single way, educationally and socially, by attending this school. Thank you St. Robert's
