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

Pentwynmawr Primary School is situated on the outskirts of Newbridge, in Caerphilly local authority. There are 130 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 20 who attend the nursery part-time. Around 11% of pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is lower than the national average of 19%. The school identifies 23% as having additional learning needs. This is higher than the national average for primary schools in Wales of 21%. No pupils speak Welsh at home or have English as an additional language. The executive headteacher was appointed in May, 2018. The school was last inspected in October, 2010. 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 Pentwynmawr Primary School July 2018 Summary The school is a nurturing community where staff value and care for pupils well. Many pupils have positive attitudes to learning and treat each other with respect. Across the school, pupils enjoy their lessons and make good progress. The overall quality of teaching is good with a few elements of excellence. The school provides many rich learning experiences that support pupils’ all-round development. However, pupils have a very limited role to play in making decisions about their learning or the work of the school. Arrangements for supporting pupils with additional learning needs are effective and enable specific pupils to make good progress towards their targets. The executive headteacher’s sensitive and purposeful leadership sets a clear strategic direction for developing the school. Since his very recent appointment, and in a short period of time, he has taken swift actions to establish clear procedures and to ensure that staff feel valued and understand their roles and responsibilities. He has accurately identified key areas for improvement, such as the self-evaluation and improvement planning processes.

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.
