School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2018. We give a summary star rating based on the last available data as a helpful indicator to parents. This is to be used as a guide only. You can view national level results including the percentage of pupils across Wales achieving the expected levels for the Foundation Phase (age 7) and at Key Stage 2 (age 11) here.

School Description

Westwood Community Primary School is in Buckley in Flintshire. Nearly all pupils live locally, with a few pupils coming from the surrounding area. Pupils come from a variety of backgrounds and the area it serves contains families from a range of economic circumstances. Currently, around 27% of pupils are entitled to free school meals. This figure is above local and national averages and is rising slowly. There are currently 214 pupils on roll including 29 in the nursery classes. Pupils are organised into eight classes. The school admits pupils to the nursery class at the age of three. There are eight full-time teachers and three part-time teachers. They are assisted by six full-time and 12 part-time learning support staff. A very few pupils are ‘looked after’ by the local authority. The school identifies around 28% of pupils as having additional learning needs and nine pupils have a statement of special educational need. English is the main home language of most pupils. Very few pupils come from an ethnic minority background and almost no pupils use Welsh as their first language. A few pupils receive support for English as an additional language. Seven pupils received fixed-term exclusions within the last year. This is above national averages. The school building has undergone significant remodelling in the summer of 2012. It housed the local resource provision for autistic pupils until September 2012. The headteacher and chair of governors were appointed in January 2010. The individual school budget per pupil for Westwood Community Primary School in 2012-2013 means that the budget is £3,787 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Flintshire is £13,748 and the minimum is £2,758. Westwood Community Primary School is 8th out of the 73 primary schools in Flintshire in terms of its school budget 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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
