School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG)
The Pupil Deprivation 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 (eFSM) and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC). Schools are expected to maximise the use of this funding to implement sustainable strategies which will quickly lead to improved outcomes for pupils eligible for free school meals or who are LAC.
As a school we want to learn from the best practice in Wales and beyond by balancing whole school strategies with targeted interventions to ensure that all learners entitled to free school meals or who are LAC benefit as individuals, whilst the whole school also develops it's ability to support every learner to achieve their full potential.
Trallwng Infants has a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by the governors and Central South Consortium to promote high expectations, attainment and progress and to remove barriers to learning for pupils entitled to this funding.
Professional Learning Plan
Welsh Government provide schools with a professional learning grant to support us in providing professional learning opportunities for staff. At Trallwng we are committed to always look for ways to continue improving the quality of teaching and learning across the school to fulfill our school vision and be ready for the new curriculum.
Each year the senior leadership team plan the most effective ways to spend this grant, to achieve the national mission for Wales:
1. Developing a high-quality education mission
2. Inspirational leaders working collaboratively to raise standards
3. Strong and inclusive schools committed to excellence, equity and well-being
4. Robust assessment, evaluation and accountability arrangements supporting a self-improving system
