Franksbridge Community Primary School Grants

The Welsh Government require all schools to publish statements about their use of the Pupil Deprivation Grant  and Accelerated Learning Grant.

The Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG) 2023-24 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). The purpose of this grant is to break the link between disadvantage and educational attainment. 

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.

At Franksbridge School we have a comprehensive plan, agreed and monitored by Powys Local Authority to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.

Accelerated Learning Grant (RRR)

This Welsh Government grant is intended to support the leaning of children whose progress or wellbeing may have been affected by school closure due to COVID 19.
