Pupil Premium Grant (PDG)
The Welsh Government provides funding to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This grant is called the Pupil Deprivation Grant. As a school, we have much lower than average numbers of children who receive Free School Meals and therefore we have a small amount of PDG funding in the school budget. The needs of these children differ within the school. For this academic year of 2022/23 we will receive £2,300.
This year, we shall use this money towards supporting those children who receive intervention support as part of receiving Universal and Additional Learning Provision support as well as and those MAT pupils (More Able & Talented). This is through the purchase of licences and agreements for the use of the online Spelling system of "Nessy" and the online Reading resources of “Giglets” and VIPER’s for comprehension skills.
If you feel that your child may be eligible for this grant, please speak to either Mrs. Groves or someone in the office. If you feel you may qualify for Free School Meals, please speak to us as even if you do not claim the meal, your child and the school could benefit from the extra money in the school budget. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence. Even if you do not wish for your child to take up a Free School Meal, just by registering, the school can benefit.
