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 level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2021. 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 Wirfoddol Reoledig Llanllwni is situated in the village of Llanllwni, in Carmarthenshire local authority. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. There are 38 pupils between 4 and 11 years old on roll, including three full-time nursery age pupils. Pupils are divided into two mixed-age classes. Over a three-year-period, around three per cent of pupils have been eligible for free school meals. This is significantly lower than the national percentage of 18%. Sixty five per cent (65%) of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes and 13% speak English as an additional language. The school has identified around 18% of pupils as having special educational needs. This is lower than the national percentage of 21%. The school was last inspected in January 2013 and has been under the care of the headteacher of a nearby school since 2015, who spends two days a week there. Estyn does not inspect religious education or the religious content of collective worship when it is a school with a religious character. Instead, the governing body is required by law to arrange for religious education and collective worship to be inspected separately.

Pupils’ behaviour is very good across the school and they have positive attitudes to learning. Many pupils, including those with special educational needs, make sound progress from their starting points. Staff work together closely and supportively as a team in a Welsh environment. However, teachers do not always have high enough expectations in terms of pupils’ standards or academic aspirations. As a result, around half of pupils do not develop as independent or ambitious learners. Leaders identify the school’s strengths well and, on the whole, areas for improvement. However, monitoring procedures and improvement plans are not always robust enough to identify or address important areas for improvement. Inspection area Judgement Standards Good Wellbeing and attitudes to learning Good Teaching and learning experiences Adequate and needs improvement Care, support and guidance Good Leadership and management Adequate and needs improvement 2 A report on Ysgol Gynradd Wirfoddol Llanllwni November 2019 Recommendations R1 Ensure that all of the school’s monitoring procedures and improvement plans are clear and focus firmly on improving standards and provision R2 Embed all the principles of the foundation phase to ensure that all pupils develop good independent learning skills R3 Raise teachers’ expectations in order to provide an appropriate challenge for pupils to achieve to the best of their ability R4 Improve pupils’ reading skills in Welsh and English, where appropriate What happens next The school will produce an action plan to show how it will address the recommendations. Estyn will review the school’s progress.
