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 Bro Teyrnon is a happy, inclusive and caring community that places a strong emphasis on celebrating Welshness and respecting others. Most pupils are very well behaved and treat others with courtesy and tender care. The Welsh language is at the heart of all of the school’s work and nearly all pupils are proud of their ability to use the language both inside and outside the classroom. One of the school’s excellent features is the way in which pupils make a valuable contribution to its caring ethos, for example as the oldest pupils support their youngest peers in a highly caring manner. During their time at the school, most pupils make strong progress in their skills from their starting points. The youngest pupils develop their skills very soon after starting school, particularly in their spoken Welsh skills. By the end of their time at the school, most pupils are confident readers and discuss the content of their books maturely and intelligently. Across the school, most develop sound writing, mathematics and digital skills and apply them appropriately in a variety of different contexts. The school curriculum provides a good range of beneficial activities and learning and play experiences for pupils. Overall, teachers across the school use a suitable range of teaching methods to challenge and support learning. However, staff have a tendency to over-direct learning, which limits pupils’ ability to apply their skills independently and achieve to the best of their ability. Since the school was established over a decade ago, the headteacher has succeeded in establishing a purposeful learning environment that celebrates Welshness and maintains high standards in terms of the Welsh language and pupils’ well-being. Leaders share the school’s vision successfully with all stakeholders. Leaders have a good understanding of the school’s strengths and areas for improvement, including the need to ensure consistency in teaching and refine it across the school. Members of the governing body provide good support for leaders. They take advantage of the expertise of members effectively to support the school’s work and provide support for leaders, as necessary.
