Powys Privacy Notice (Forden School)

Pupil Deprivation Grant


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 and access to music lessons is covered for all eligible pupils and the remainder provides in-class support for these pupils.

GDPR - Privacy notice

At Forden School we are committed to protecting your privacy. Our Privacy Policy explains details of education related data collected by the Forden School, the local authority (Powys County Council) and the Welsh Government, what the data is used for, who it is shared with and how it is stored.

An updated Privacy Notice has been issued in respect of additional data collected due to Covid-19. This should be read in conjunction with the Privacy Policy above.

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a project that will run jointly between schools and Dyfed-Powys Police. It is a county-wide initiative across all schools in Powys.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools, prior to the start of the next school day, when a child or young person has been exposed to, or involved in, any domestic incident.

School Attendance

We want our pupils to get the best education, and the building blocks for this begin with pupils coming to school each and every day. If children miss school regularly, they miss out on learning the fundamental skills that will set them up for success in the later years of school.

Our approach to ensuring regular school attendance is based on the Powys Traffic Lights attendance Scheme.
