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 level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2021. 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 Ger y Llan is a Church in Wales voluntary controlled primary school. The school is situated in the village of Letterston between Haverfordwest and Fishguard in Pembrokeshire. In January 2011, Ysgol Mathry, also a voluntary controlled primary school, was amalgamated with the school and a few additional pupils were received. Most of the pupils who attend the school live in the village and the surrounding rural areas. The school describes the area as one that is neither prosperous nor economically disadvantaged. Twenty-two per cent of pupils are entitled to free school meals, a figure that is higher than the local authority and national averages. The school caters for pupils between three and eleven years of age. There are 147 pupils on the school's roll, including eleven children of nursery age who attend on a part-time basis. The school has identified 27% of pupils as having additional learning needs; a figure that is higher than the local authority and national averages. No pupil holds a statement for special educational needs. Sixteen per cent of pupils come from homes where Welsh is the main language spoken. The school's language policy notes that Welsh is the main medium of teaching in the foundation phase. In key stage 2, pupils are taught through the medium of English and Welsh but more emphasis is placed on Welsh. There are currently no pupils of ethnic minority background at the school. Since the previous inspection in June 2006, the school has experienced changes in leadership and amongst the teaching staff. The school transferred to a new building on the same site in April 2012. The current headteacher has been in post since May 2011. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Ger y Llan in 2011-2012 means that the budget is £3444 per pupil. The maximum budget per pupil in Pembrokeshire primary schools is £5323 and the minimum is £3000. Ysgol Ger y Llan has the 38 th highest budget per pupil of the 61 primary schools in Pembrokeshire.
