School Description

Ty Isaf Infant and Nursery School is in the Pontymister area of Risca, near Newport. The local authority is Caerphilly. Most pupils come from the local area, with a few coming from across the authority to attend the school’s special educational needs resource base. Pupils generally come from homes that are neither socially nor economically advantaged nor disadvantaged. Pupil numbers have declined over the last five years. There are currently 128 full-time equivalent pupils on roll between the ages of three and seven, of whom 44 attend the nursery on a part time basis. Six pupils attend the special educational needs resource base. The school has identified 15% of its pupils as having some degree of additional learning need, including six pupils with statements of special educational need. Approximately 19% of pupils are entitled to free school meals. In 2011 this was 30%. No pupil was excluded in the previous 12 months. Nearly all pupils are from white British homes. No pupil has Welsh as a first language. A small number of pupils have English as an additional language and come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds. No pupil is ‘looked after’ by the local authority. The last inspection was in the spring term 2007. The current headteacher, who was previously the deputy headteacher, was appointed to the position of headteacher in September 2009. The deputy headteacher was appointed in December 2009. Both have recently returned from maternity leave. The individual school budget per pupil for Ty Isaf Infant and Nursery School in 2012-2013 means that the budget is £4,227 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.
