Professional Learning Grant 2023/24


Clyro Church in Wales School has been awarded a grant of £2,405.00 from Welsh Government to support Professional Learning. This grant has been awarded to all schools, to help plan professional learning opportunities to enable staff to be ready and prepared to embrace the transformational curriculum in Wales.


As a school, we are adapting our plans and teaching approaches, with emphasis being on the new Curriculum for Wales (CfW).


Outline of intentions:

  • To fund supply cover to enable staff to attend training, cover supply costs or visit other schools to see good practice in relation to the CfW– 2023/24;


Expected impact:

  • To be prepared for the New Curriculum by providing our learners with purpose-led, broad and exciting and relevant learning experiences;
  • To develop robust assessment around the learner;
  • To develop a high quality learning team through continued professional development;
  • To build and sustain meaningful partnerships working with other individuals and establishments:


Accelerated Learning Plan

The primary purpose of the funding is to allow schools to put in place and deploy additional human capacity in order to support learners in addressing their needs.

This funding will be used at our school in order to develop intervention support and programmes to narrow the gap in achievement for pupils.


The grant is only to be used by schools for additional human resources in achieving the above aim – it is not eligible to be used for equipment or consumable. Our school will be using the funding to provide an Intervention LSA to work across the school.
