Free School Meals Application

We receive a special grant from the Welsh Government called the Pupil Deprivation Grant. This means that for every child eligible for Free School Meals we receive another £917 which we have to spend on activities, support and resources which directly benefits those children.


We are required to submit and publish a plan of how we intend to spend that money.


You can see a summary of our plan by clicking on the link below.

Pupil Development Grant


Each year we receive a Pupil Development Grant from the Welsh Government. This grant is calculated on the basis of the number of children who claim free school meals (FSM). The document below shows how we spend this money to support the progress and development of FSM children.
