Pupil Development Grant
The PDG is extra funding from the Welsh Government to overcome the additional barriers poorer pupils face that prevent them from achieving their full potential.
This may include exceptionally able pupils who, because of their family background are not achieving their full personal potential, even though they appear to be holding their own in comparison with their peers.
The current year financial years grant is £2,300 and this is allocated to support staffing in the Foundation Phase to provide intervention support.
The school has received a further £1,526.85 in the academic year 2020-21 in the form of the Accelerated learning Grant, this grant is to support pupils following the closure of schools during the Covid pandemic. This has been used to pay for staff to provide intervention support in both literacy and numeracy for KS2 pupils.
