Gwynn Jones November 2019 Summary Ysgol T Gwynn Jones is a vibrant infant school that provides a caring learning environment for its pupils. Nearly all pupils participate enthusiastically in learning activities and enjoy attending school. Most make strong progress in all areas of the foundation phase curriculum and demonstrate high levels of wellbeing. For example, pupils work and play together kindly and successfully. Teachers and leaders have created a stimulating curriculum that pupils find engaging. They ensure that pupils have rich opportunities to learn outdoors. They focus well on developing the whole child and recognise the importance of developing pupils’ physical skills. For example, they develop pupils’ body control effectively through activities such as dancing, gymnastics, sawing and hammering. The headteacher’s vision provides purposeful direction for the school community. Leaders and teachers recognise the importance of working towards improvement priorities as a team. They develop staff skills and knowledge, and engage with other schools and national bodies to ensure that this happens effectively. Leaders value the input of stakeholders, such as parents and the governing body. These groups make a valuable contribution to school life.

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.
