Summary of Pupil Deprivation Grant 2016 – 2017

Brynteg C P School


The purpose of the Pupil Deprivation grant is to improve the educational attainment

of pupils from low income families and who are entitled to free school meals (eFSM).

Schools are expected to maximise the use of the funding by introducing sustainable

strategies which will quickly lead to improved outcomes for pupils entitles to free

school meals.


As a school, we want to learn from the best practice in Wales and beyond by:

1.Planning interventions that focus on improving the attainment of pupils from

deprived backgrounds, regularly monitoring pupils’ progress and evaluating

the impact of the intervention

  1. Integrating plans for the effective use of the PDG into the school

Development plan, basing our practice on sound evidence and including

them as part of a whole school strategy.

  1. Balancing whole school strategies with targeted interventions to ensure that

all learners entitled to free school meals benefit as individuals, whilst the

whole school also develops its ability to support every learner to achieve

their full potential.
