EIG/PDG Statment

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 four 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 purchase the necessary resources

4.  To monitor and evaluate the impact

In 2020-21 Ysgol Meifod was provided with a PDG allocation of £6,900.

At Ysgol Meifod we have a plan, agreed and monitored by Powys and ERW (Education Through Regional Working), to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.
