CEREDIGION County Council has welcomed the Welsh Government announcement that schools in Ceredigion are to receive additional financial support through a Pupil Deprivation Grant towards improving the results of pupils in three priority areas: improving literacy, improving numeracy and decreasing the effect of poverty on educational achievement.
The grant will give £918 for each pupil entitled to free school meals. However, Ceredigion schools are already in receipt of £450 for each of these pupils which means that Ceredigion will receive an additional £468 of new money for each of these pupils
This is the third year that Ceredigion has received this support.
