These grants provide financial support to help tackle the effects of poverty on attainment.

All guidance documents will be reviewed to reflect the change from the Pupil Deprivation Grant to the Pupil Development Grant but in the meantime please continue to use the current guidance.

The guidance documents provide information on what you need to consider when planning how to use the grant.

They should be read alongside Pupil Deprivation Grant - What Really Works (external link) and Rewriting the Future: raising attainment and ambition in Welsh Schools.

The EEF Toolkit (external link) also provides information on proven effective strategies to help maximise the funding.

Further guidance and resources (external link) to help tackle the impact of poverty on education are available on Learning Wales.
