PDG Funding

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.

In 2018-19 Sketty Primary School has been provided with a PDG allocation of £30,650.

The governors have directed us to use this, to raise standards in Literacy, funding school staff to deliver bespoke programs to groups of learners.
