Below are the School Improvement priorities for 2018-19
"The Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG) is extra funding from the Welsh Government to overcome the additional barriers poorer pupils face that prevent them from reaching their potential. This may include exceptionally able pupils who, because of their family background are not achieving their full personal potential, even though they appear to be holding their own in comparison with their peers ".
The allocation for the financial year 2018-19 for SJL based on percentage of free school meals is £100,050.
This money will fund small groups or individual support and interventions to develop pupils numeracy and literacy skills. This will include using specialist intervention programmes alongside resources including digital technologies (DCF).
