School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Edern is situated on the outskirts of the town of Nefyn in Gwynedd local authority. There are 77 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including six part-time nursery pupils. Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes. Over a three-year-period, around 14% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals, which is lower than the national average of 18%. Most pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. The school has identified around 16% of its pupils as having additional learning needs. This is lower than the national percentage of 21%. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The school was last inspected in June 2014 and the headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2016. 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 Edern January 2020 Summary The school is a highly caring community, which takes great pride in its Welshness and encourages its pupils to make good progress. As a result, most make sound progress and achieve well. A particular feature of school life is the extremely high standard of behaviour from nearly all pupils. They are welcoming, very friendly towards adults and visitors, and show pride when talking enthusiastically about their school. The headteacher has a clear vision that is based on ensuring that all pupils make continuous improvement within a respectful, Welsh environment. She shares her vision clearly with staff and governors. As a result, teamwork is one of the school’s strengths, and staff are dedicated, are robust language models and promote the Welsh language naturally in the classrooms. This has a positive effect on pupils’ mastery of the language and their willingness to speak Welsh naturally with their friends. The school has highly effective systems to track pupils’ progress, and teachers and assistants use them successfully to provide them with successful support.

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.
