School level results for primary schools were not published by the Welsh Government in 2020. 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 Gynradd Wdig is situated in the village of Goodwick, which is near the town of Fishguard in Pembrokeshire. It serves the local community and the surrounding area. At present, 124 pupils attend the school, including 26 nursery children, nine of them being part-time. Thirty per cent of pupils are entitled to free school meals, which is higher than the national figure. Eighteen per cent of pupils come from homes where Welsh is spoken. In terms of its linguistic nature, the school is a ‘transitional school’, according to the Welsh Government’s linguistic categories. Welsh is the main medium of teaching, and recently the school has introduced the use of Welsh as a medium of teaching for mathematics and science. All pupils follow the Welsh first language study programme. A very few pupils are from ethnic minority backgrounds, but no pupils are learning English as an additional language. About 40% of pupils have special educational needs, which is significantly higher than the national figure. At present, the school is in the charge of a temporary headteacher and deputy headteacher for a year, following the retirement of the previous headteacher in the summer of 2012. The individual school budget per pupil for Ysgol Wdig in 2012-2013 is £3,641. The maximum per pupil in primary schools in Pembrokeshire is £5,870 and the minimum is £3,138. Ysgol Wdig is in 32nd position of the 61 primary schools in Pembrokeshire in terms of school budget per pupil.

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.

Ysgol Gymunedol Wdig Reviews

Average Rating:


“Look past the data at a truly happy school”
None of this data truly represents Ysgol Wdig, the pupils, or the hard work, effort and care that the staff put in to educating our children. I could not be prouder of this school. It is the happiest, most close knit of schools. I would never send my children anywhere else. There's more to education than misleading tables, percentages and star ratings.
