Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG)
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 those who are LAC.
As a school, we have outlined 6 core areas to be targeted when spending the grant allocated to us. These core areas coincide with research carried out by the Education Endowment Foundation who identify the most effective ways of closing the gap in attainment of learners.
These 6 areas are:
|PDG Allocation||EYPDG Allocation||Total Funding (EYPDG/PDG)|
|Trelewis Primary School 2017/2018||£36,000.00||£4,800.00||£40,800.00|
At Trelewis Primary School we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by the Central South Consortia to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligble for this funding.
We have used the funding available to:

Early Years Pupil Deprivation Grant (EYPDG)
In addition to the PDG, schools are provided with additional funding for those pupils in Early Years Education (Nursery). The amount allocated to Trelewis Primary School can be found in the table above.
EYPDG funding should be used to make a lasting impact on outcomes for disadvantaged learners. As with the PDG, the aim of the EYPDG is to accelerate the rate of attainment of children of all abilities from low income households to help them reach their full potential.
