How do we spend our Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG)?
As a school we are required by the Welsh Government to publish how we spend our PDG. The PDG is the grant that the Welsh Government allocate to each school in Wales in order to ensure that the school does all that it can to close the achievement gap between those children who are eligible for free meals (eFSM) and those children who are not. At Albany we currently have approximately 25% of pupils who are entitled to free school meals.
This year we were awarded £92,000 PDG and £21,000 Early Years PDG.
We have used the funding available to:
• provide intervention and support programmes led by teaching staff and Learning Support Assistants
• improve parental engagement in the school and use Time Credits to promote involvement
• provide training for school staff, including training in social and emotional support
• implement and use data tracking systems to identify learners’ needs, target interventions and monitor impact
• work in partnership with other schools, the community and other organisations
• sharing good practice with other local schools on teaching and learning, use of resources etc
• provide non-contact leadership opportunities to monitor progress and to identify best practice internally and externally of the School
• staff and resource social and emotional support to a range of pupils
• provide enrichment opportunities for targeted pupils who may be unable to access the opportunities themselves
