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 Gorslas is in the village of Gorslas, about ten miles from the town of Carmarthen, and it serves the village and the surrounding rural area. The school provides education for pupils aged between three and 11 years. Children are admitted to the school on a full-time basis at the beginning of the term before they reach their fourth birthday. Pupils are divided into six classes. In line with the local authority’s policy, Welsh is the teaching medium in the Foundation Phase. In key stage 2, pupils are taught through the medium of Welsh and English, with the aim of making them bilingual by the time they transfer to secondary school at the age of 11. During the inspection, there were 111 pupils on roll and numbers continue to rise. Approximately 28% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. Very few pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds. Approximately 20% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is lower than the county percentage and the percentage for Wales. Thirty one per cent of pupils are on the school’s additional learning needs register, which is higher than the national figure. A very few have a statement of special educational needs. The headteacher has been in post since November 2007. The school was last inspected in January 2008. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Gynradd Gorslas in 2013-2014 is £3,527. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Carmarthenshire is £8,152 and the minimum is £2,941. Ysgol Gynradd Gorslas is in 66th position of the 106 primary schools in Carmarthenshire in terms of the school budget per pupil.

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.
