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.

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.

School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Hafodwenog is situated in the village of Trelech in Carmarthenshire local authority. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work, and English is introduced in key stage 2. There are 42 pupils between 4 and 11 years old on roll, including 5 full-time nursery age pupils. Pupils are organised into two classes, one for the foundation phase and another for key stage 2. Thirty seven per cent (37%) of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. No pupils are eligible for free school meals and very few have additional learning needs. The headteacher of a nearby school has been in charge of the school since September 2018. He spends two days a week at the school, and the school was last inspected in November 2012. 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 Hafodwenog February 2019 Summary The school has a strong community ethos and most pupils show pride towards their local community. They visit their community regularly and welcome visitors to the school to enrich their learning. Staff place a firm emphasis on creating a safe learning environment for pupils, which has a positive effect on their wellbeing. However, teachers do not always have high enough expectations in terms of standards or pupils’ academic aspirations. As a result, a minority of pupils do not make enough progress, particularly in key stage 2. In a short period of time, the new headteacher has established an ethos of successful co-operation among the staff. She has started to make beneficial improvements to aspects of provision and pupils’ standards. Leaders identify the school’s strengths and many areas for improvement. However, monitoring procedures are not always rigorous enough to identify or address important issues, such as the lack of challenge in teaching.
