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

The school is situated near the village of Picton, close to the coastal road that links Prestatyn and Holywell in Flintshire local authority. There are 48 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 7 nursery age pupils. They are divided into two mixed-age classes. On average, over the last three years, around 26% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is higher than the national percentage of 18%. Twenty six per cent (26%) of pupils are on the special educational needs register, which is higher than the national percentage of 21%. Very few pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. Most pupils are from white British backgrounds and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. Around 9% of pupils speak English as an additional language. The school was last inspected in October 2014 and an acting headteacher was appointed in September 2018. Since 2016, the school has been part of a formal federation with Ysgol Uwchradd Maes Garmon under one governing body. 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 Mornant December 2019 Summary The school is a caring and inclusive community, where a high priority is placed on developing pupils’ wellbeing. Pupils work together maturely, and the relationship between them and the staff is a strong feature. The school has a prominent Welsh ethos, and staff encourage pupils to use the Welsh language regularly in all aspects of their life and work. Pupils take pride in their bilingualism and feel that they are an important part of their local area. By building on their previous learning and planning interesting experiences, teachers ensure that pupils’ skills are developed well. As a result, by the end of their time at the school, many achieve well from their starting points, particularly in terms of their literacy skills. The acting headteacher provides the school with robust leadership, and promotes a clear vision in order to improve it further. She identifies the school’s main strengths and areas for improvement thoroughly. With this information, and with the support of the governing body, she provides a clear strategic direction for the team’s hardworking team of staff. This has led to obvious improvements in provision and standards, particularly over the last year.
