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 level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2021. 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

Ysgol Nantgaredig is a Welsh-medium community school which is situated in the village and serves the village and the surrounding rural area. It is maintained by Carmarthenshire local authority. Following the closure of nearby schools, the school’s catchment area has widened, leading to an increase in pupil numbers. There are 248 pupils aged between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 39 nursery-aged children. Some of the nursery children attend on a part-time basis. Pupils are admitted to the school on a full-time basis during the third term following their third birthday. The school also maintains two Welsh-medium speech and language units that serve the whole of Carmarthenshire. There are seven pupils in the Foundation Phase unit and nine in the key stage 2 unit. Approximately 60% of pupils come from homes in which Welsh is spoken as a first language. Welsh is the main medium of teaching. Very few pupils come from ethnic minority backgrounds. Approximately 5% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, a figure that is significantly lower than the national average. Twenty six per cent of pupils have additional learning needs, which is higher than the national figure, and 10 pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Nantgaredig in 2013-2014 is £4,267. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Carmarthenshire is £8,152 and the minimum is £2,941. Ysgol Nantgaredig is in 24th place of the 106 primary schools in Carmarthenshire in terms of the school budget per pupil. The school was last inspected during the summer term 2008, and the current headteacher was appointed in November 2009.
