School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Brynsierfel is situated in the village of Llwynhendy, which is a few miles from the town of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire local authority. There are 206 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 12 part-time nursery age pupils. Over a period of three years, slightly below 21% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals. This is slightly higher than the national percentage of 19%. Approximately 12% of pupils speak Welsh at home and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified around 34% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is higher than the national percentage of 21%. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The school was last inspected in September 2010 and the current headteacher was appointed to the post in January 2016. 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 Gymraeg Brynsierfel May 2018 Summary The school is extremely homely and the classrooms and corridors are colourful and stimulating and interesting spaces, where all pupils can learn productively. Leaders have very high expectations in terms of pupils’ wellbeing and academic progress, in order to enable each of them to make sound progress and achieve to the best of their ability. The headteacher and deputy headteacher have created a conscientious team of staff at all levels, who provide highly interesting and varied learning experiences for pupils, and treat them with continuous respect and care. As a result, nearly all pupils enjoy the school’s life and work and feel safe there. They apply themselves fully to their tasks and show an energetic enthusiasm towards their work. One of the school’s significant features is the kind way in which teachers provide very effective opportunities for pupils to relax their bodies and minds at the beginning of sessions during the day. This helps them to forget about any worries they may have and enables them to concentrate clearly on their learning.

Estyn will invite the school to prepare a case study on the kind way in which teachers provide very effective opportunities for pupils to relax their bodies and minds at the beginning of sessions so that they are ready to learn, to be disseminated on Estyn’s website.

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.
