The latest allocation of cash for schools to help close the attainment gap has been confirmed by the Scottish Government.
Pupil equity funding (PEF) allocations have been published, showing the total amount each local authority and school in Scotland is to receive in the 2021-22 financial year.
PEF is allocated directly to schools and focuses on supporting pupils in the local authorities of Scotland with the highest concentrations of deprivation.
To see how much has been allocated to your child’s school, use the table below:
How much money each school receives depends on how many pupils from P1 to S3 are registered for free school meals.
Schools are then able to choose how they spend the funds, with the only condition that the initiatives are designed to reduce obstacles to children from deprived areas performing well.
