School Description

Ysgol Glannau Gwaun is situated in the town of Fishguard in Pembrokeshire local authority. There are 291 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll. The school has two streams that provide education either through the medium of Welsh or English. The school has five single-age classes and four mixed-age classes between the two streams. The school has one nursery class, which admits pupils on a full-time and part-time basis. It also has two additional education centres for pupils with a variety of specific needs that are in the care of Pembrokeshire local authority. Over a three-year-period, around 25% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is higher than the national percentage of 18%. Around 3% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified 29% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is higher than the national percentage of 21%. The headteacher was appointed to the post in January 2018 and the deputy headteacher was appointed in September 2018. The school was last inspected by Estyn in July 2012. 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 Glannau Gwaun July 2019 Summary During their time at the school, many pupils develop effective communication and reading skills and achieve well. A majority of pupils write purposefully and at length across the curriculum. Pupils with additional learning needs achieve well against their personal targets, including pupils in the additional education centres. Many pupils acquire sound mathematical concepts and most pupils develop successful information and communication technology (ICT) skills. In addition, most are enthusiastic learners who apply themselves to new experiences confidently. Teachers and assistants care diligently and conscientiously for pupils. They provide pupils and their families with extremely valuable guidance and support. As a result, pupils feel safe at school. The headteacher’s vision for developing the school is ambitious. She has established appropriate procedures in a short period, which are beginning to have a positive effect on the school’s provision, particularly pupils’ wellbeing.

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 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
