PUPIL DEVELOPMENT GRANT

 

The Pupil Development Grant (PDG) is allocated to schools with pupils who come from low income families and are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (e-FSM) and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC).

 

Schools are expected to make the best use of this funding to implement sustainable strategies that will bring about changes for learners eligible for free school meals or who are LAC.

 

As a school we follow these three steps:

  1. To identify the target group of pupils, its characteristics and needs.
  2. To plan interventions which make the most effective use of resources.
  3. To monitor and evaluate the impact of resources. In 2020-21 Sennybridge Primary School has been provided with a PDG allocation of £14,950.00

 

At Sennybridge School we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by the Local Authority and ERW, to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.
 

We have used the PDG funding available towards:

  • The implementation of interventions for targeted pupils.
  • To provide digital resources to support learners across the school
  • Specific intervention programmes aimed at developing reading, phonics, handwriting in English and Cymraeg..
  • To improve attainment for targeted pupils through the deployment of additional support.

 

The school has a detailed breakdown and planning document.
