Pupil Development Grant (PDG)

Pupil Development Grant (PDG) for 5-15 year olds

We are undertaking the following opportunities to support pupils who are facing some of the challenges of poverty and deprivation:

> Improving pupil outcomes in literacy, numeracy and digital competence (Welsh Government [WG] priority) through targeted interventions such as music therapy, outside learning etc.
   
> Improving pupil outcomes in communication, independence and PSD through focusing on their emotional well-being using a whole school THRIVE approach.
   
> Reducing the impact of poverty (WG priority).
   
> Raise levels of pupil engagement and interaction through Outdoor Learning and Forest Schools work.
   
> Engaging families, with a particular focus on partnership working and focused training.
   
> Continuation of weekly music therapy sessions to enhance pupil engagement, interaction and communication using the Sounds of Intent Framework to monitor and evaluate the impact of the provision on the progress of pupils who are accessing music therapy.


Funding will also be used to make full use of the wide range of technology that we have in school, using pupils and staff Digital Leaders to begin to develop and implement a whole school approach to the Digital Competence Framework (Welsh Government 2016), as well as using this technology to implement bespoke approaches for some of our “harder to engage” pupils.

Ongoing training and support for staff in therapeutic rebound therapy, with targeted pupils accessing weekly sessions to extend their learning experiences and improve their interaction and communication skills.

Early Years Pupil Development Grant (EYPDG) for 3-4 year olds

Our EYPDG allocation for 2017-2018 is £3,000.00; this funding will be used to enhance staff pedagogy in the Foundation Phase and increase pupil engagement in lessons.

Our EIG/PDG plans are regularly scrutinised by the governing body, supported by advice and challenge from the local authority and from the Education Achievement Service (EAS).

Full details of our EIG/PDG plans are included in our school development plan and are available at the school.

Article 12 (Respect for the views of the child): When adults are making decisions that affect children, children have the right to say what they think should happen and have their opinions taken into account.

Article 23 (Children with disabilities): Children who have any kind of disability have the right to special care and support, as well as all the rights in the Convention, so that they can live full and independent lives.

Article 28 (Right to education): All children have the right to a primary education; young people should be encouraged to reach the highest level of education of which they are capable.
