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 Dyffryn Iâl is a village school in Llandegla, Denbighshire. The school is under the voluntary control of the Church in Wales. The school has 50 pupils between the ages of 3 and 11, including 6 part-time pupils in the nursery. There are two classes at the school. The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is around 5% which is significantly below the national average of 18%. All pupils are from a white ethnic background. The school has identified around 20% of its pupils as having special educational needs, which is close to the national average of 21%. The headteacher took up his post in January 2015. The school was last inspected in March 2015. 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 Dyffryn Iâl October 2019 Summary The headteacher provides strong and effective leadership, which ensures a clear strategic direction for the school and encourages a culture that promotes continuous improvement. Nearly all pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. They are well mannered, and always greet people politely. They show respect for adults and for one another, listen carefully to what their friends and teachers say, and respond to one another’s ideas considerately. The warmth and strength of the working relationships between pupils and staff mean that pupils feel safe in school and know what to do if they are worried or anxious. Teachers and learning support assistants work very effectively as a team and take advantage of every opportunity to enrich pupils’ learning. As a result, nearly all pupils, including those with special educational needs, make good progress and achieve well by Year 6. They recall previous learning well, and use and apply their literacy, numeracy and information and communication technology (ICT) skills successfully in a variety of situations.

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.
