School Description

Ysgol Treferthyr is situated in the seaside town of Criccieth in Gwynedd. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work. There are 113 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 14 part-time nursery age pupils. They are divided into five mixed-age classes. Around 12% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is lower than the national percentage of 19%. Around half of pupils speak Welsh at home. Very few pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds. The school has identified 26% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is higher than the national percentage of 21%. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. The headteacher was appointed to the post in April 2009. The school was last inspected in December 2010. Since then, there has been a significant change in staffing, including the appointment of a deputy headteacher in September 2017. 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 Treferthyr April 2018 Summary The staff create a happy, caring and inclusive ethos at the school, which nurtures a supportive and active learning environment.

The concentration of pupils shows likelihood of admission based on distance criteria


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.
