School Description

Ysgol Gymraeg y Trallwng is situated in the town of Welshpool in Powys local authority. There are 79 pupils between 4 and 11 years old on roll. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. The school has one single-age class and three mixed-age classes. Over a two-year period, around 3% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is much lower than the national percentage of 18%. Around 4% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified 18% of its pupils as having special educational needs, which is lower than the national percentage of 21%. The school opened in September 2017 and this is the school’s first inspection. The acting headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2019. 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 y Trallwng February 2020 Summary Most pupils develop sound literacy skills and achieve well in Welsh and English. Most use numeracy effectively and develop purposeful information and communication technology (ICT) skills across the curriculum. Pupils with special educational needs make good progress against their personal targets. Most pupils are enthusiastic learners who apply themselves to new experiences confidently. They are ready to work at the beginning of lessons, and maintain their commitment purposefully throughout the session. Teaching and provision of learning experiences are strengths. Teachers and assistants care for their pupils conscientiously and loyally. They provide them with beneficial guidance and support, which reinforce the strong sense among pupils of their school being a safe community. The acting headteacher’s stimulating vision to develop the school further is clear and purposeful. With support from the dedicated governors, she implements priorities effectively. As a result, they focus directly on motivating teachers and assistants to develop capable and intelligent pupils.

Pupil heat map key

How many pupils attending the school live in the area?


The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria

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.
