Pupil Deprivation Grant

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 (e-FSM) and pupils who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC).

Schools are expected to make the best use of this funding to implement sustainable strategies that will quickly bring about changes for learners eligible for free school meals or who are LAC.

As a school we have agreed the following three steps:

1. To identify the target group of pupils, its characteristics and needs

2. To plan interventions which make the most effective use of resources

3. To monitor and evaluate the impact of resources

In 2015-16 Llangors Church in Wales School was provided with a PDG allocation of £10500

At Llangors Church in Wales School we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by Powys LEA to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.

We have used the funding available to help fund LSA’s.

Monitoring of the PDG fund is by reporting to Governors on a termly basis.
