How much will your school get thanks to the Welsh Lib Dems?

September 30, 2014 11:30 AM

The Welsh Liberal Democrats are delivering for Wales' poorest children.

Even though we're not part of the Welsh Government, we've managed to secure our flagship Pupil Deprivation Grant to support pupils from deprived backgrounds with reading and numeracy skills.

Since we first secured this money, teachers have told us just how much of a difference it makes to the children who need it most. Higher reading levels, fewer children skipping school, a narrower attainment gap - all because of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

Next year, all schools in Wales will receive £1,050 per child on free school meals - rising to £1,150 the year afterwards. For the first time, we're also extending this Grant to under 5s to make sure our children get the best possible start in life.

*In some schools, the numbers receiving free school meals are so small that the Welsh Government are unable to provide exact figures. We have therefore provided an estimate of the potential the school could receive. In all cases, figures are subject to change.
