Highlights from Latest Inspection

Rhydri Primary School is in the rural village of Rudry in Caerphilly local authority. There are currently 89 pupils between 3 and 11 years old on roll, including 12 part-time nursery age pupils. They are divided into four mixed age classes.

The average proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals over the last three years is around 3%. This is well below the national average of 18%. The school identifies that around 20% of pupils have additional learning needs, which is similar to the national average.

No pupil speaks Welsh at home, and there are very few pupils from an ethnic minority background. The school currently works in close partnership with a local junior school with the intention of establishing a more for...mal federation. The governing bodies of Bedwas Junior and Rhydri Primary schools, together with Caerphilly local authority, propose to establish the federation of Bedwas Junior and Rhydri Primary schools.

If the proposal is accepted, the federation will come into effect on 1 September, 2019. The school was last inspected in September, 2013. The headteacher was appointed in September, 2017.
