School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2019. 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.

There are four single-year classes and three mixed-year classes. Around 6% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is lower than the national average of 19%. Very few pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes or ethnic minority backgrounds. The school identifies about 15% of its pupils as having special educational needs, which is below the national average of 21%. The headteacher took up her post in September 2007 and the school was last inspected by Estyn in February 2014. 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 Ysgol Bro Carmel October 2019 Summary Ysgol Bro Carmel is a happy, caring and inclusive community with a clear focus on promoting outstanding standards of pupil wellbeing. A very strong feature of the provision is the way in which pupils' voice is fully involved in making decisions about what happens in school. As a result, nearly all pupils' attitudes to learning are outstanding and they show pride in their school. They challenge themselves to become ambitious and capable learners and most make good progress as they move through the school. The headteacher provides extremely strong leadership. She has a passionate and clear vision for developing the school into an inclusive and stimulating community for pupils. Staff are dedicated and enthusiastic. They work closely and highly effectively as a team. One of the outstanding features of the school is the arrangement it makes for staff development. This results in a strong learning community where staff face current developments and changes in education with enthusiasm and confidence. A culture of improvement pervades the school, and reviewing and planning for improvement are central to its ethos.

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.
