PDG Expenditure

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. 

How our grant is spent

At Caldicot School, our plan for using the PDG allocation from Welsh Government is integrated into our school improvement plan (SIP). Our four overarching priorities (2019 - 2021) linked to

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

The total number of students on school roll for September 2019 is 1,315. The school’s eFSM population is around 10%. The three year average for eFSM is 9.7%

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;
  • Strategies to support the monitoring and tracking of eFSM students

The school’s PDG and EIG Plans are scrutinised by the Governing Body, supported by advice from the EAS and monitored by the Local Authority and Challenge Adviser EAS.
