School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Llandwrog is situated in the village of Llandwrog, approximately six miles from the town of Caernarfon. The school is under the voluntary control of the Church in Wales and is maintained by Gwynedd local authority. Estyn does not inspect religious education or the religious content of collective worship when the school is of a religious character. Instead, the governing body is required, by law, to arrange for religious education and collective worship to be inspected separately. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. There are 46 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including three nursery age pupils. The school has two mixed-age classes. Over a three-year-period, around 7% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals. This is significantly lower than the national percentage of 18%. Around 90% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. The school has identified around 12% of pupils as having additional learning needs, which is significantly lower than the national percentage of 21%. The school was last inspected in September 2011. The headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2017. She is responsible for another nearby school and divides her time between the two schools.

An excellent feature is the familial ethos, which ensures that pupils and staff care for each other naturally. As a result, pupils are happy to attend, behave very well and develop positive attitudes to learning. During their time there, most pupils develop as competent and confident bilingual learners, make sound progress and achieve well. Teachers provide rich and interesting learning experiences for pupils, which meet most of their needs. The school has a very strong Welsh ethos and provision encourages pupils to make full use of the Welsh language in all aspects of its life and work. As a result, pupils show pride towards the language and a clear appreciation of the local area’s culture and history. The headteacher provides effective leadership that provides a clear strategic direction for the school. She receives strong support from dedicated staff, who work well together as a team. They show strong commitment to promoting continuous and sustainable improvements. Governors have a thorough understanding of the school and use their knowledge purposefully to challenge the school and hold it to account for standards.

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.
