School Description

Tynyrheol Primary School is in the village of Llangeinor, in the Garw Valley in Bridgend local authority. There are 77 pupils on roll, aged from three to eleven, including five full-time nursery children and five who attend part-time. There are four mixed-age classes in the school. The rolling average for the past three years of pupils eligible for free school meals is about 17%. This is slightly below the national average of 19%. All pupils are of white British ethnicity. A very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The school identifies around 23% of pupils with additional learning needs. This is slightly higher than the national average of 21%. The acting executive headteacher took up her position in January 2018. She is the school’s fourth headteacher in the past year. The school’s last inspection was in 2010. 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 Tynyrheol Primary School June 2018 Summary Nearly all pupils feel safe and happy in school. They behave well in classes and around the school and are very caring towards one another. They are willing to work hard and are eager to succeed. In the foundation phase and in lower key stage 2, shortcomings in the school’s provision mean that many pupils make only slow progress and more able pupils do not achieve as well as they should. The quality of teaching varies too much and around half of teachers underestimate pupils’ abilities. The curriculum does not meet the needs and interests of all pupils well enough. The school cares for pupils well and promotes their personal development appropriately. The school lacks an effective permanent leadership structure, although an acting executive headteacher’s interventions are beginning to have a positive effect on the quality of the school’s provision. In recent years, the effectiveness of the school’s governing body has been limited and has allowed low standards to persist and the school to accrue a large budget deficit.

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.
