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 Edmwnd Prys is situated in the village of Gellilydan, near Blaenau Ffestiniog, in Gwynedd local authority. There are 34 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. Over a three-year period, around 14% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals. This is lower than the national percentage of 18%. Around 77% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified 32% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, and none has a statement of special educational needs. The percentage of pupils with additional learning needs is higher than the national percentage of 21%. The headteacher was appointed to the post in January 2013. She is responsible for another nearby school and divides her time between the two schools. Ysgol Edmwnd Prys was last inspected in June 2013. 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 Edmwnd Prys November 2018 Summary During their time at the school, most pupils acquire successful Welsh communication skills and make good progress in their oracy, reading and writing, considering their starting points. Most pupils’ English skills when discussing, presenting written work and reading are developing well. A few pupils show their true abilities successfully when writing at length in Welsh and English. Most develop their mathematics and concepts of numeracy effectively, and their information and communication technology (ICT) skills show their confidence and ability purposefully. Teachers and assistants care for their pupils loyally and provide reliable care and support for them and their families. As a result, pupils feel safe at school. They are very grateful to the staff for their commitment towards their needs and interests. They also care for each other and respect their peers and adults. The headteacher has a sound understanding of the school’s needs. She works very closely with the assistant headteacher. As a result, they build sensibly on the school’s strengths and improve areas for development wisely through robust quality improvement procedures.

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.
