School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2020. 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 Llanbedr Church in Wales Primary School is in the village of Llanbedr Dyffryn Clwyd near Ruthin in Denbighshire. There are currently 45 pupils at the school, including nine part-time pupils who attend the nursery provision. There are two mixed-age classes. Around 9% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is much lower than the national average of 20%. The school identifies 21% of pupils as having additional learning needs. This figure is slightly lower than the national average of 25%. All pupils are of white British ethnicity and nearly all speak English as their main language. A very few pupils speak Welsh as a first language at home. In 2013, the Denbighshire local authority carried out a review of primary provision in the Ruthin area and proposed the closure of Ysgol Llanbedr. The Welsh Government rejected this proposal in January 2015. In February 2015, the local authority announced a second proposal to close Ysgol Llanbedr. At the time of the inspection, the outcome of this proposal is pending. There have been seven different headteachers since the school’s last inspection in June 2009. In January 2016, the diocese asked the headteacher of another Church in Wales school in Denbighshire to be the acting headteacher of Ysgol Llanbedr. The schools have worked collaboratively since this time but have not established a formal federation. The school retains its own governing body. The headteacher shares her time equally between the two school sites. There is an assistant headteacher who provides leadership at the school when the acting headteacher is off site. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Llanbedr Church in Wales Primary School in 2016-2017 means that the budget is £6,473 per pupil. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Denbighshire is £8,267 and the minimum is £3,066. Ysgol Llanbedr Church in Wales Primary School is second out of the 46 primary schools in Denbighshire in terms of its 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.
