As a school containing pupils eligible for free school meals (eFSM), we receive additional funding per pupil to support the school’s aims of narrowing the gap in attainment between these pupils and those not eligible. This funding is known as the Pupil Deprivation Grant, or PDG.
For the period 1st April 2014 – 31st March 2015, the funding per pupil is £918. Therefore the school has received £195,534 in additional funding for this financial year.
Our spending plan and targets associated with this funding can be found below.
