School Description

Ysgol Carreg Emlyn is situated in the village of Clocaenog, in Denbighshire local authority. There are 79 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including six part-time pupils in the nursery class. The school has four mixed-age classes. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. Over a three-year-period, around 3% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is much lower than the national percentage of 18%. Around 69% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and there are no pupils from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified 14% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is lower than the national percentage of 21%. The headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2014 and this is the school’s first inspection. The school operated as one school on two sites, in Clocaenog and Cyffylliog, from September 2014. It moved into a newly-built building at the beginning of June 2019. 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 Carreg Emlyn June 2019 Summary During their time at the school, most pupils develop effective communication and reading skills, and achieve well. When they are given purposeful opportunities to write at length, many pupils make sound progress across the curriculum, considering their starting points. Many pupils acquire sound mathematical concepts and successful information and communication technology (ICT) skills. They also understand that keeping fit and eating and drinking healthily contribute extensively to their wellbeing. Teachers and assistants care diligently for pupils in a sensitive and conscientious manner. As a result, pupils feel safe and take pride in their school, and feel that the school is an important part of their community. They are caring towards each other and treat their peers and adults with great respect. The headteacher’s leadership is based on appropriate management procedures. She works closely with teachers and assistants, and has established suitable procedures in the new building in a very short period of time. Governors are supportive and leaders target areas for development satisfactorily through suitable self-evaluation procedures and development plans.

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.
