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 Development Grant (PDG). This grant is awarded to the school per financial year, so all plans are created on this basis.
For the period 1st April 2020 – 31st March 2021, the school has received £278,300 which is equivalent of £1,150 per eligible pupil. Our spending plan for this funding, along with how we intend to measure the impact of this, can be found below:
