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

Ty Sign Primary School provides a welcoming, caring and inclusive environment for its pupils. Staff value pupils highly and understand and support their well-being needs effectively. Throughout the school, relationships are strong and there is a positive atmosphere of mutual respect. The Specialist Resource Base (SRB) further enhances the school’s inclusive ethos and staff cater very well for the needs of the pupils who attend the SRB. Behaviour across the school is good. In most cases, pupils are polite, kind and respectful both in class and at playtimes. Staff work hard to ensure that the school is a safe place, and the governing body supports the school’s work to ensure that pupils feel safe, valued and celebrated. Pupils, parents and staff have welcomed the new headteacher and ensured that her very short time at the school has been valuable. There is a good culture of staff working and planning together. However current plans for the school’s curriculum do not identify the progression of pupils’ skills well enough. As a result, despite the interesting nature of much of the curriculum offer, pupils do not always make the progress they are capable of. The governing body is supportive of the school and proud of the pupils and staff. However, the work of leaders and governors to evaluate the school’s effectiveness does not clearly identify aspects that need to be improved. The school does not always address its most important improvement needs and as a result there are inconsistencies in elements of the school’s practice and provision. Over time, the school has not provided staff with enough opportunities to develop their professional skills, such as through sharing effective practice to support improvements in teaching and learning. Across the school, pupils enjoy their learning and the opportunities they have to experience new things, play with their friends and become ethically informed citizens. In general, they understand the value of a healthy lifestyle, staying safe online and attending school daily. However, not enough pupils attend school regularly enough and too many arrive at school late each day. In general, pupils who do not attend school regularly do not make enough the progress in their learning. During their time at the school, pupils develop a strong sense of belonging to both their local community and Wales. School staff ensure that all pupils have a wide variety of interesting opportunities to learn about their locality, visit places further afield and take part in cultural events. Pupils enjoy these and talk with pride about their school experiences, local area and cultural heritage.
