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

Llanarth School is situated approximately four miles to the south of Aberaeron in Ceredigion and serves the village and neighbouring rural area. The school admits pupils at the beginning of the September following their fourth birthday. Currently, there are 69 full-time pupils at the school, and 10 part-time pupils in the Community Nursery (Dechrau’n Deg). Pupils are taught by four teachers and five full-time assistants, along with a literacy support teacher for 2.5 days a week. Welsh is the school’s main language medium and the aim is to ensure that pupils are fully bilingual by the time they transfer to the secondary sector. Most pupils will transfer to Aberaeron Comprehensive School at the end of their time at the school. Twenty-eight per cent of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. A very small percentage of pupils are from an ethnic background, which is lower than the percentage for the local authority. Approximately 34% of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is above the county and national percentage. The school states that the school is located in an area which is now economically disadvantaged, which is different from the time of the school’s last inspection. About 37% of pupils receive support for additional educational needs, which is significantly higher than the national figure (21.2%). Very few pupils have a statement of additional needs. No permanent or temporary exclusions were recorded in the year before the inspection. There have been significant changes to staffing at the school since the last inspection. The headteacher was appointed to her permanent post in September 2010, and two other teachers have been appointed since September 2010. The individual school budget per pupil for Llanarth Primary School in 2011-2012 is £3,211 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Ceredigion is £8,706 and the minimum is £2,987. Llanarth Primary School is 53rd out of the 60 primary schools is Ceredigion in terms of school budget per pupil.
