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 Mynach is a rural primary school. It is situated in the village of Pontarfynach near Aberystwyth, Ceredigion. The school serves the village itself and the surrounding rural area. The school provides education for pupils aged between four and 11 years. Children are admitted to the school on a full-time basis at the beginning of the term before they reach their fourth birthday. During the inspection, 28 pupils were on roll. Pupils are divided into two classes. Welsh is the main medium for pupils’ educational, social and cultural life and all subjects are taught through the medium of Welsh. Units of work in some subjects are delivered through the medium of English, with the intention of ensuring that pupils are fully bilingual when they leave the school. About half of the pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. No pupils come from an ethnic minority background and no pupils receive help with Welsh or English as an additional language. About 7% of pupils are entitled to receive free school meals, which is considerably lower than the county percentage and the percentage for Wales. Eleven per cent of pupils are on the additional learning needs register, which is considerably lower than the national figure. No pupils were excluded during the last academic year. The headteacher has been in her post since April 2011. She is also headteacher at two nearby schools that work within a partnership. In addition to the headteacher, there is an assistant headteacher who was appointed in February 2012, one full-time teacher and one part-time teacher. The school had its last inspection in 2008. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Gynradd Mynach in 2013-2014 is £5,001. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Ceredigion is £9,062 and the minimum is £3,119. Ysgol Gynradd Mynach is in 18th position of the 51 primary schools in Ceredigion in terms of the school budget per pupil.
