School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2020. 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 Capelulo is in the village of Dwygyfylchi near Penmaenmawr in Conwy. The school has 136 pupils between the ages of 3 and 11, including 22 part-time pupils in the nursery. They are divided into six classes. The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is around 15%. This is slightly lower than the national average of 19%. A few pupils are from a minority ethnic background. The school has identified around 24% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is slightly above the national average of 21%. The headteacher took up her post in January 2007. The school was last inspected in October 2011. 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 Capelulo April 2019 Summary The headteacher and staff succeed in creating a homely and inclusive ethos for pupils. The quality of care, support and guidance provided by the school is effective and ensures that pupils develop a sound understanding of values, such as honesty and fairness. As they move through the school, most pupils including those with additional learning needs make sound progress from their differing starting points and achieve expected standards. There is an effective working relationship between adults and pupils, which fosters a successful learning environment. Teachers plan interesting activities that encourage pupils to participate and work hard. Nearly all pupils develop positive attitudes to learning, settle quickly to work and interact together well. Most show good levels of concentration in their work and they are keen to learn. Teachers plan valuable opportunities for pupils to use their literacy skills in a variety of curricular areas. Across the school many pupils develop their skills in mathematics successfully. However, teachers do not plan systematically for the development of Welsh, numeracy and information and communications technology (ICT) skills to ensure continuity and progression. Leaders ensure that the whole school community is committed to the school’s motto of ‘Enriching Life Through Learning’ and this is reflected in the positive ethos evident in all classrooms. Governors are supportive of the school’s work, meet regularly and fulfil their duties conscientiously. They are aware of priorities in the school development plan. This enables them to act as critical friends. However, leaders do not operate effectively enough when setting a strategic direction and challenging the school’s performance. The school does not have robust enough self-evaluation procedures that are based on reliable evidence of teaching, learning and provision.

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.
