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 Description

Ysgol Cynddelw and Ysgol Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog are part of the Dyffryn Ceiriog federation. The headteacher is supported by a deputy headteacher at the Ysgol Cynddelw site and a head of site at Ysgol Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog. Ysgol Cynddelw provides Welsh and English-medium education for pupils in two separate streams. With the enthusiastic support of the staff, the headteacher has created a clear and robust vision based on ensuring that pupils’ well-being and the development of their Welsh language skills are at the forefront of the life and work of the schools in the federation. Leaders, including governors, have an appropriate understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for improvement. They include staff in the self-improvement process effectively by developing their understanding of the standard of provision and progress in pupils’ skills. However, self-evaluation processes do not always enable leaders to identify areas for improvement and the steps that are needed to develop provision further. Leaders are extremely active in ensuring that all members of staff work together effectively to improve the quality of provision for pupils. Teachers plan jointly effectively to provide a curriculum that meets the needs of many pupils successfully. Teachers provide learning experiences that are effective in supporting pupils to make progress in their skills, particularly their Welsh oracy skills and digital skills. However, teachers do not always provide opportunities for pupils to apply their extended written skills or numeracy skills consistently enough across the areas of learning and experience. Nearly all pupils behave exceptionally well. They treat each other, staff and visitors with respect. Pupils enjoy the range of stimulating and engaging experiences that are provided for them. They work together effectively in the learning areas and are willing to contribute to class discussions and share their ideas maturely and sensibly. When pupils are given an opportunity to do so, most concentrate well and engage conscientiously when responding to challenges in their work. However, teachers do not always provide enough purposeful opportunities for pupils to develop their skills in independent learning activities.
