School Description

Ysgol Gynradd Rhiwlas is a rural school and serves the village and the surrounding area. It provides education for pupils between 3 and 11 years old. Welsh is the school’s everyday language and the main medium of teaching and learning. English is taught formally in key stage 2. Approximately half of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. There are no children from ethnic minority backgrounds. Children are admitted to the nursery class on a part-time basis in the September following their third birthday, and full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. During the inspection, there were 42 pupils on roll, including seven in the nursery class. They are taught by one full-time teacher and two part-time teachers in two mixed-age classes. Very few pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is significantly below the national average. Forty two per cent (42%) of pupils are on the school’s additional learning needs register. This figure is significantly higher than the percentage for Wales. No pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The headteacher was appointed in September 2012. The school was last inspected in November 2009. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Gynradd Rhiwlas in 2016-2017 is £5,041. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Gwynedd is £10,404 and the minimum is £3,089. Ysgol Gynradd Rhiwlas is in 16th place of the 93 primary schools in Gwynedd 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 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.
