Pupil Deprivation Grant

PUPIL DEPRIVATION GRANT (PDG) Statement

The PDG is a grant to schools from the Welsh Government targeted at those pupils eligible for free school meals. We use the grant to provide opportunities for these children that they otherwise might not have available to them. It is also used to help these children to achieve their full potential. A proportion of all school visits and trips is covered for all eligible pupils and the remainder provides in class support for these pupils.
