School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2019. 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

Ysgol Gymuned Llanfechell is situated on the outskirts of the village in the north of Anglesey. Pupils come from the village and the surrounding rural area. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. There are 70 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including eight nursery age pupils. The school has three mixed-age classes. Over the last three years, around 18% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is equal to the national percentage. Around 75% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. The school has identified around 10% of its pupils as having special educational needs. This is significantly lower than the national percentage of 12%. The school was last inspected in June 2014 and the acting headteacher has been in post since 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 Gymuned Llanfechell February 2020 Summary The school is a welcoming and inclusive community that fosters a supportive and diligent learning environment for pupils. An excellent feature is the familial ethos that exists to ensure that pupils and staff care for each other naturally. As a result, nearly all pupils enjoy the school’s life and work, behave very well and have positive attitudes to learning. Teachers provide rich and interesting learning experiences for pupils, which meet most of their needs well and, as a result, during their time at the school, many make sound progress from their starting points. However, at times, staff’s expectations of what pupils are able to achieve are not consistent. As a result, activities are not always challenging enough to ensure that all pupils develop as independent learners and achieve to the best of their ability. The acting headteacher has a clear vision for the school and high expectations for the wellbeing and achievement of all pupils. She has conveyed this vision successfully to staff, governors and parents. In the short time since being appointed, she has identified the school’s strengths and main areas for improvement well. However, over time, monitoring procedures have not been rigorous enough, and leaders have not acted quickly enough to address important areas for improvement.

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.
