The school makes effective use of their delegated Education Improvement Grant (EIG) funding to successfully improve provision and outcomes for pupils in the Foundation Phase. The school makes good use of this funding to provide teaching support.


PDG – £17,250


The Pupil Development Grant (PDG) is allocated to schools with pupils who come from low-income families and are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (e-FSM) and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC).


Schools are expected to make the best use of this funding to implement sustainable strategies that will quickly bring about changes for learners eligible for free school meals or who are LAC.


As a school we have agreed the following three steps:


1. to identify the target group of pupils, its characteristics and needs

2. to plan interventions which make the most effective use of resources

3. to monitor and evaluate the impact of resources


At Bishopston Primary use the funding to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding. Our plan is agreed and monitored by Swansea Local Authority and ERW.


We have used the funding available to:


  • provide intervention and support programmes that are proven to have the greatest impact and to be sustainable- Toe-by-Toe Reading Interventions.
  • provide specific high quality training for school staff, including: Dyslexia training, Elklan Training, MAPA Training.
  • implement and use data tracking systems to identify learners’ needs, target interventions and monitor impact.
  • provide Digital work in partnership with other schools, the community and other organisations- e.g. Educational Psychologist, Behaviour Support.
  • improve attendance of target group by using interventions.
  • support learners and their families through our Family Liaison Officer, this includes linking families with the Early Help Hub.
