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

Creunant Primary School is in the village of Crynant in the Dulais Valley in Neath Port Talbot. There are 125 pupils on roll, including 18 part-time nursery pupils. There are two single-age and four mixed-age classes. Nearly all pupils come from the local area. The rolling average of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is 13%. This is lower than the Wales average of 19%. The school states that around 16% of pupils are on the additional learning needs register. This is lower than the Wales average of 21%. A very few pupils have a statement of special education needs. Nearly all pupils are white British. A very few pupils speak English as an additional language and no pupils speak Welsh at home. The local authority cares for a very few pupils. The school was last inspected in October 2010. The headteacher, who was previously the deputy headteacher, took up her post in January 2017. She was the acting headteacher from January 2016. 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 Creunant Primary School ctober 2017 Summary The school is a nurturing community where staff value and care for pupils very well. Strong working relationships help pupils to build their confidence and to learn well. Nearly all pupils are proud of their school and the work they complete. The school has recently experienced a high level of teacher turnover and this has contributed to uneven pupil progress. The new staff team is working well together to address inconsistencies in provision and the new monitoring arrangements have helped to improve aspects of teaching, for example the quality of feedback to pupils. However, these arrangements are in the early stages of implementation and do not currently ensure that all pupils receive their full curriculum entitlement or develop their skills systematically as they move through the school.

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 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 last 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.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
