Pupil Development GrantPDG
We are a school which benefits considerably from this grant. The grant is based upon the number of pupils eligible for free school meals (eFSM) and constitutes a significant part of our funding. As with most schools it is largely allocated to staffing costs associated with the provision for our vulnerable learners.
In 2020 however, the governing body decided that the year six residential trip to Llangrannog would be funded for eFSM pupils who were eligible for free school meals on the first day of the academic year. It was also decided to substantially subsidise the trip for some other families.
