Franksbridge Community Primary School Grants
The Welsh Government require all schools to publish statements about their use of the Pupil Deprivation Grant and Professional Learning Grant
The Pupil Deprivation 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). The purpose of this grant is to break the link between disadvantage and educational attainment.
Schools are expected to make the best use of this funding to implement sustainable strategies that will quickly bring about changes for learners eligible for free school meals or who are LAC.
At Franksbridge School we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by Powys Local Authority and ERW, to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.
This year Franksbridge School has received £1150 in PDG funding. We have allocated the funding to:
- provide intervention and support programmes that are proven to have the greatest impact and to be sustainable – e.g. Nessy, Precision teaching and ‘Inference for Intervention’
- implement and use data tracking systems to identify learners’ needs, target interventions and monitor impact
Data analysis evidence shows that children eligible to receive eFSM make better than expected progress at Franksbridge School.
Professional Learning Grant 2019-2020
