Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG)

Ysgol Glan Gele receives a substantial grant to combat deprivation from the Welsh Government. This grant is payable to pupils in Ysgol Glan Gele who are in receipt of FSM ( Free School Meals, eFSM).


We are required to develop a plan to ensure that this money is spent wisely and impacts on pupil attainment. This plan has been shared with The LA (Conwy) GWE and Welsh Government. In Ysgol Glan Gele we have appointed staff and developed a range of interventions and support mechanisms to support target pupils. 


The teacher with responsibilty for the PDG is Julia Buckley Jones - Head teacher . The Governor with responsibility is Mr Mark Brierley. The Chair of the Governing Body Cllr John Mac Lennan oversees the plan and is updated by the Head teacher and responsible Governor each term.

Below we have outlined the main priorities of the plan and the staff who have been appointed to deliver the plan. Also noted are the interventions in place to support target pupils.
