Pupil Deprivation Grant
Ysgol Ardudwy’s Deprivation Grant Statement
The purpose of the Pupil Deprivation Grant is to improve outcomes for learners from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals (FSM).

In 2016-17 Ysgol Ardudwy received a pupil Deprivation Grant allocation of £33,350.
At Ysgol Ardudwy we have a comprehensive plan, which has been agreed and monitored by the Gwynedd Local Authority and GwE, to promote progress and remove barriers to learning for students eligible for this funding.
The money is used to fund the employment costs of a Senior Literacy Assistant and Numeracy Assistants for targeting FSM pupils and others from families in poverty in order to intervene to raise their literacy and numeracy skills.
It is not appropriate for the school to publish its detailed plan due to the danger that individuals could be identified.
