School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2019. 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 Trefnant Voluntary Aided Church in Wales Primary School serves the village of Trefnant and surrounding area in the county of Denbighshire. There are 83 pupils aged 3 to 11 years at the school including 12 pupils in the nursery. Pupils are taught in four mixed age classes. Around 19% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is close to the national average of 18%. Nearly all pupils are white British and speak English as their main language. A very few pupils speak Welsh at home. The school identifies that around 22% of pupils have additional learning needs, which is close to the national average of 21%. The current headteacher took up her post in 2007. In January 2016, the diocese asked the headteacher to take on the role of acting headteacher of another Church in Wales school in Denbighshire. The schools have worked collaboratively since this time but have not established a formal federation. The headteacher shares her time equally between the two sites. An assistant headteacher provides leadership at the school when the headteacher is off site. The school’s last inspection was in October 2013. Estyn does not inspect religious education or the religious content of collective worship when it is a school with a religious character. Instead, the governing body is required by law to arrange for religious education and collective worship to be inspected separately. 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 Trefnant November 2018 Summary Nearly all pupils in Ysgol Trefnant make good progress from their starting points, especially in developing their literacy and mathematical skills. They behave well, are eager to learn and engage effectively in lessons. They develop their ability to improve their own work successfully, tackle new tasks enthusiastically and grow into confident and articulate individuals. The school tracks and monitors pupils’ progress carefully, which enables teachers to provide effective support for individuals and groups. Teachers and support staff work well together and develop strong working relationships with pupils. This creates a happy and purposeful atmosphere in the school. Teachers focus successfully on developing pupils’ skills systematically and provide interesting and varied learning experiences. There is a worthwhile emphasis on developing strong values and developing pupils as well-rounded individuals. Leaders have created a strong collaborative ethos in the school and teachers work together effectively as a strong team. They benefit from good quality professional development and share effective practice across the school and with other local schools regularly. Governors provide worthwhile support and challenge. The school benefits from the headteacher’s responsibility for leading two schools. A strong partnership between the schools has developed with effective arrangements for sharing resources and expertise.

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.
