School Description

Ysgol Gymraeg Coed-y-Gof is a designated Welsh-medium school that is located in the Pentrebane area, in the east of the City of Cardiff. The school has a large geographical catchment area and the majority of pupils come from the Caerau and Ely areas of Cardiff. These areas are described as being disadvantaged and have been identified as Communities First areas. Approximately 28% of pupils are entitled to free school meals which is similar to the percentage for the local authority (LA) but marginally above the national average. At the time of the inspection, there were 354 pupils aged 4-11 years on the school register compared with 323 during the previous inspection in 2004. Seven pupils have a statement of special educational needs (SEN) and a further 106 are on the school’s additional learning needs (ALN) register. Approximately 1% of the pupils come from homes in which Welsh is the main language. Welsh is used as the medium of teaching throughout the school, and English is added as a subject during key stage 2 with the aim of ensuring that the pupils are bilingual by the end of their period in the school. There are 13 classes within the main stream and a class in the centre for pupils with ALN that serves all of Cardiff’s Welsh-medium primary schools. The headteacher has been in post since September 2005, but there have been significant changes in the responsibilities of staff and the senior management team during the past year. In 2009-2010, the individual school budget for Ysgol Gymraeg Coed-y-Gof is £3,325 per pupil, which compares with a maximum of £14,067 and a minimum of £2,787 for primary schools in Cardiff. The school has the 54th highest budget per pupil of the 102 primary schools in Cardiff.

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.
