School-level attainment gaps and the Pupil Deprivation Grant
This project will consider whether there is an association between the Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG) and school-level attainment gaps Wales. The project will explore the types of interventions that schools have implemented, and attainment outcomes at both Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 4.
This project sets out to explore the potential impact of the PDG at a school-level. Data obtained on the level of support and use of the PDG in Welsh schools will be linked to administrative education data at the school level. This linkage will be used to identify if there are any significant associations between the use of the PDG and school-level attainment gaps. The analysis will provide an understanding of the outcomes of PDG implementation.
