The introduction of the Pupil Deprivation Grant (PDG) by the Welsh Assembly Government has enabled schools to fund strategies to improve outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. The school uses its grant to employ additional staff to support individual free school meal pupils and ensure that they have access to the same opportunities as the less disadvantaged. Pupils are supported individually and in small groups and their performance closely monitored to ensure that their progress is on a par with other groups of learners.
