The Gorad is an area of the school which is the focal point for additional learning needs in key stages 3 and 4. However, we aim to integrate ALN pupils at every opportunity possible in terms of curriculum and classes.

The provision for statemented /IDP pupils is a combination of the following and the support reflects what is recommended in their statements/Individual Development Plans. Here is an outline only.

Ysgol David Hughes Deprivation Grant Statement

The purpose of the Pupil Deprivation Grant is to improve the results of learners who come from low income families and who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). Schools are expected to use this money to the utmost to deliver sustainable strategies which will lead quickly to improvements for learners who are eligible to receive free school meals.

As a school we learn from best practices in Wales and beyond by:

1. planning interventions which focus on improving the attaiment of pupils from deprived backgrounds, and which note clearly what is expected from the intervention, monitoring pupil progress regularly and appraising the effectiveness of that intervention.
2. integrating plans for using PDG in the School Development Plan, basing practices on good evidence and including these as part of the whole school strategy.
3. balancing whole school interventions and targeted interventions in order to ensure that every learner who is eligible for free school meals benefits as an individual and that the whole school develops its ability to help every learner to fulfil their full potential.

In 2016-17 Ysgol David Hughes received a Pupil Deprivation Grant allocation of £94,300

At Ysgol David Hughes we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by the Anglesey Local Government and GwE, to promote progress and break down barriers to learning for students who are eligible for this grant.

We have used the money available to:

• Employ a Family Liaison and Support for Vulnerable Learners Officer in order to support vulnerable learners and their families to ensure:
That attainment standards rise – the gap between vulnerable learners and their peers.
Learners are given better emotional support in order to:-
Improve behaviour
Improve attendance
• Give specific support to vulnerable learners from years 7-11 and ensure that they have access to extra-curricular and curricular activities e.g. learning coaching; support in English, Mathematics and Welsh;
• Employ an Attendance Officer

It is not appropriate for the school to publish its detailed plan due to the risk of identifying individuals.
