School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Pum Heol is a community primary school that is maintained by Carmarthenshire local authority. The school is situated in the centre of the village and serves the village itself and the surrounding rural area. There are 91 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll. Pupils are taught in four mixed-age classes, two for the foundation phase and two for key stage 2. Over a three-year period, around 12% of pupils have been eligible for free school meals. This is lower than the national percentage of 18%. Around 19% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and very few are from ethnic minority backgrounds. Welsh is the main medium of teaching and learning in the foundation phase, and the aim is to ensure that all pupils are bilingual by the end of key stage 2. The school identifies 24% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is higher than the national average of 21%. The headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2012 and the school was last inspected in May 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 DRAFT AND C ONFID ENTIAL 1 A report on Ysgol Gynradd Pum Heol September 2018 Summary Staff create a caring ethos at the school, where everyone is respected and valued. There is a constructive and supportive relationship between adults and pupils, which contributes to the familial ethos, and the learning environment encourages pupils to take pride in their work and to contribute significantly to school life. Teachers’ purposeful presentations, which include skilful use of information and communication technology, motivate pupils to concentrate and learn effectively in their lessons. As a result, most pupils make good progress during their time at the school. They have positive attitudes towards learning and many work together effectively and develop as enthusiastic learners. The headteacher has a clear vision and high expectations, which are shared successfully with staff, governors, pupils and parents. Staff support the headteacher successfully to realise the school’s priorities. There is a strong sense of teamwork and everyone works together effectively to raise standards and ensure pupils’ wellbeing.

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.
