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

Wat’s Dyke Primary School is situated in the Garden Village area of Wrexham. The school serves mainly owner-occupied homes. It admits children to the nursery at the age of three. The entry of children into the nursery is controlled and administered by Wrexham Borough Council. Numbers on roll are increasing. The school opened in 1977 but has been considerably remodelled in recent years. The school building and teaching areas are surrounded by good size playing fields and outdoor learning facilities. There are 259 full-time pupils on roll and a further 42 children attend the nursery on a part-time basis. The school has 11 classes. These are organised into three single age classes and three mixed-age classes in the Foundation Phase and Year 2. There are three single-age classes and two mixed-age classes in key stage 2. The school has 12 full-time teachers, two part-time teachers and 18 learning support assistants. The school describes the area it serves as mainly advantaged. Approximately 5% of pupils are entitled to free school meals. This is significantly lower than local and national averages. Currently, there are three pupils who are being “looked after” by the local authority. English is the predominant language for all pupils. Currently there are no pupils receiving support for English as an additional language and no pupils who use Welsh as a first language. Approximately 3% of pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds. Base line indications show that attainment on entry to the school is generally above average. Approximately 10% of pupils are identified as having additional learning needs (ALN), but no pupils have a statement of ALN. No pupils were excluded in the last year. Since the last inspection in 2004 there have been few changes to the management structure and senior leadership of the school. The headteacher has been in post since 1998. The 2010-2011 individual school budget per pupil for Wat's Dyke C.P. School is £2,971 which compares with a maximum of £9,122 and a minimum of £2,734 for primary schools in Wrexham. The school has the 51st highest budget per pupil out of the 62 primary schools in Wrexham.
