Very few pupils at the school speak English as an additional language. The school has identified 18% of its pupils as having additional learning needs.

The headteacher began in post in September 2017 and the school was last inspected in February 2011. 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 Gynradd Amlwch December 2018 Summary Pupils’ wellbeing is at the heart of all of the school’s work. Provision for vulnerable pupils is commendable and responds well to pupils’ needs. Across the school, pupils are very polite and caring towards each other. The school has a strong community ethos and pupils take pride in their local community. This is supported well by numerous visits to the local area and the visitors that come to the school. On the whole, teaching is sound and teachers provide a wide range of interesting learning experiences that ignite pupils’ enthusiasm in their learning. As a result, many pupils show positive attitudes to learning. However, a majority of pupils are unwilling to speak Welsh regularly. The headteacher and governors provide clear leadership for the school’s work. They have clear information about standards and use a purposeful range of suitable evaluation activities to ensure 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 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 last 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.
