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 Description

Ysgol Sant Dunawd is in the village of Bangor on Dee in Wrexham local authority. There are currently 110 pupils on roll between the ages of 3 and 11 years. This includes 14 pupils who attend the nursery on a part-time basis. There are four classes, one in foundation phase and three in key stage 2. The three year rolling average for pupils eligible for free school meals is around 6%. This figure is below the Welsh average of 18%. Around 16% of pupils have been identified as having special educational needs. This is below the national average of 21%. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. Nearly all pupils come from homes where English is the first language. Very few pupils speak Welsh at home. Very few pupils are from an ethnic minority background. The headteacher took up her post in January 2013 and the last inspection by Estyn was in October 2013. Further information is available from the Welsh Government My Local School website at the link below. http://mylocalschool.wales.gov.uk/Schools/SchoolSearch?lang=en 1 A report on Ysgol Sant Dunawd November 2019 Summary Staff, governors and the community prioritise pupils’ wellbeing at the school. As a result, most pupils treat others with respect and kindness and behave well in class and around the school. Pupils feel happy and safe and know where to turn if they need support. Pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to play a full part in the life of the school. While many pupils make good progress from their starting points, they are not always challenged sufficiently enough to use their literacy and numeracy skills at the same level across the curriculum. The majority of teachers plan interesting and engaging lessons for pupils, however the quality of teaching varies too much between classes. Leaders promote a clear vision for the school and governors support the school well. Improvement planning is generally appropriate, but the school does not always ensure that its self-evaluation and monitoring processes identify and develop targets that focus precisely enough on their impact on pupils’ learning. 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 Sant Dunawd November 2019 Recommendations R1 Sharpen self-evaluation processes to ensure that they focus clearly on pupil standards R2 Increase suitable opportunities for pupils to use their literacy and numeracy skills across the curriculum at an appropriate level R3 Ensure that teaching is of a consistently high quality across the school and provides the appropriate level of challenge to all pupils to enable them to make good progress R4 Ensure that the foundation phase learning areas are stimulating, and that the provision encourages pupils to choose activities indoors and outdoors independently throughout the day What happens next The school will draw up an action plan to show how it is going to address the recommendations. Estyn will review the school’s progress.
