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 The Bishop of Llandaff, our plan for using grant allocations from Welsh Government is integrated into our school improvement plan (SIP). Our four overarching priorities (2020 - 2023) linked to

  • Learning and Teaching;
  • Ethos and Environment;
  • Achievement and Standards; and
  • Developing Staff.

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. 

Our PDG is spent in the following ways for 2020-21

  • PiXL club membership; 
  • Learning Coach/Mentor;
  • Maths and English teaching;
  • Alternative provision; and 
  • Enrichment opportunities. 

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.
