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 Pant Pastynog serves the villages of Prion, Peniel, Saron, Nantglyn and the surrounding rural area in Denbighshire local authority. The school is under the voluntary control of the Church in Wales. Welsh is the main medium of the school’s life and work, and English is introduced in key stage 2. There are 78 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 8 part-time nursery pupils. The average proportion of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals over the last three years is around 4%, which is significantly lower than the national percentage of 19%. Around 80% of pupils come from Welsh-speaking homes. The school has identified around 13% of its pupils as having additional learning needs, which is lower than the national percentage of 21%. The school was last inspected in November 2011, and the current headteacher was appointed to the post in September 2013. Estyn does not inspect religious education or the religious content of collective worship when the school is of 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 Pant Pastynog June 2019 Summary The school is a very familial, caring and inclusive community, in which nearly all pupils show great pride in being a part it. The headteacher’s innovative and robust leadership sets a clear strategic direction for developing the school. He has very high expectations and a vision that is based on providing education of the highest possible quality. One of the excellent features of the school is the way in which members of staff and governors work together particularly effectively. Staff establish a very good working relationship with pupils, which fosters a supportive and stimulating learning environment for them, and ensures that they achieve well. Nearly all pupils’ standards of wellbeing and attitudes to learning are extremely sound. Pupils take full advantage of the valuable opportunities that are provided for them to express their views and contribute towards important aspects of the school’s work. As a result, nearly all pupils make sound and consistent progress, which is at least in line with what is expected.

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.
