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.

There are seven classes, four of which are mixed year groups. Just over 40% of pupils are eligible for free school meals. This is well above the national average. A very few pupils are looked after by the local authority. Most pupils are of white British ethnicity, with a very few pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds. No pupils speak Welsh as a first language at home. The school has identified about 23% of pupils as having additional learning needs. Very few pupils have a statement of special educational needs. There were a very few fixed-term exclusions in the last year. The last inspection was in December 2008. The current headteacher took up her post in April 2010. The individual school budget per pupil for Hengoed Primary School in 2014-2015 means that the budget is £3,206. The maximum per pupil in the primary schools in Caerphilly is £5,106 and the minimum is £2,645. Hengoed Primary School is 32nd out of the 75 primary schools in Caerphilly in terms of its 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 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.

Hengoed Primary Reviews

Average Rating:

BY PARENTS, FOR PARENTS

“Thumbs up”
AUTHOR:
"> My son has been going to this school now for 4 years. He has additional needs and this school have been fantastic – helping him reach his targets and to come out of his shell. I am very happy with my choice of school.
“Disappointment”
AUTHOR:
"> I am very disappointed with this school. My son has only been attending since September. I had heard great reviews about this school if your child is "normal" but if they have any additional learning needs, or disabilities ,my advice would be to stay away. Several mothers of children with these issues have commented on how their children aren't able to reach their full potential. I had so many hopes for this school and feel very let down.
