What is the Pupil Deprivation Grant?
The purpose of the PDG is to improve outcomes for learners eligible for free school meals (eFSM) and Looked After Children (LAC). It is intended to overcome the additional barriers that prevent learners from disadvantaged backgrounds achieving their full potential.
- For each child aged 5 to 15 who is eligible for free school meals (e-FSM), as reported in the January 2015 Pupil Level Annual School Census (PLASC) return, their school will receive £1,150.
- For each child who was Looked After (LAC) as reported in the April 2015 Children in Need census, the regional consortium will receive £1,150.
- For each eligible child aged 3 to 4 in in the Foundation Phase in maintained and non-maintained settings an allocation of £300 will be made.
