£282m for our poorest pupils

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.

From September, all schools in Wales will receive £1,050 per child on free school meals - rising to £1,150 next year. 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.
