School Description

Tondu Primary School serves the village of Aberkenfig and the surrounding area north of Bridgend. It is located on two sites, which means that the nursery and reception classes are accommodated about a quarter of a mile away from the rest of the school. There are 227 pupils on roll aged from 3 to 11 years taught across eight classes, including four mixed age classes. The three year rolling average of pupils eligible for free school meals is around 25%, which is above the Wales average of 18%. The school identifies around 28% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is above the Wales average of 21%. Just under 4% of pupils come from an ethnic minority background and around 4% speak English as an additional language. A very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The school’s previous inspection was in January 2013 and the headteacher took up her post in January 2018. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Tondu Primary School November 2019 Summary Many pupils at Tondu Primary School make strong progress from their starting points as they move through the school. They develop effective literacy and numeracy skills that they apply well across the curriculum. Most behave well and show high levels of tolerance and consideration for other pupils and adults.

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.
