Grant Expenditure

All grant expenditure is designed to support specific areas of the school's work, against local, regional and national priorities. 

How our grant is spent
At Caldicot, our plan for using grant allocations from Welsh Government is integrated into our school improvement plan (SIP). Our four overarching priorities (2019 - 2022) linked to

  • Learning and Teaching;
  • Environment and Culture;
  • Achievement and Standards; and
  • Developing Staff and Others.

Pupil Deprivation Grant
The Pupil Development Grant (PDG) is designed to support improving outcomes and provision for students eligible for free school meals (eFSM) and looked after children (LAC). The PDG is intended to help overcome this additional barrier which prevent learners from disadvantaged backgrounds achieving their full potential. The total number of students on school roll for September 2020 is 1,315. The school’s eFSM population is around 12%. The three year average for eFSM is 10.7%

The total allocation of PDG to this school is £112,700. The school undertakes the following activities in order to support pupils facing the challenges of poverty and deprivation

  • Bespoke Skills based courses;
  • Literacy programme;
  • Numeracy programme;
  • Monitoring & tracking of students (and provide bespoke intervention activities);
  • Bespoke learning experiences designed to engage; and
  • Strategies to support the monitoring and tracking of eFSM students.

The strategies implemented by the school are drawn upon the most effective practice and educational research from organisations such as Sutton Trust and Education Endowment Fund, which includes well-evidenced interventions as part of a whole-school strategy.

Accelerated Learning Programme Grant
The Accelerated Learning Programme Grant  (ALP) is designed to support improving outcomes and provision for students in examination year groups, who have been particularly affected by the time missed in school owing to the Coronavirus. The grant is intended to support rapid 'catch up' for these students.

Our ALP is spent in the following way for 2020-21

  • Additional cover supervisor staffing to support release of subject specialists to work with identified students in examination year groups.
