Parliamentary Debates and Questions

S5W-04447: Tavish Scott (Shetland Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 2 November 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-04013 by John Swinney on 2 November 2016, whether it will provide a breakdown of the secondary schools that are being supported through the Scottish Attainment Challenge, also broken down by how much each will receive.

Answered by: John Swinney 16 November 2016

The Scottish Attainment Challenge provides both targeted support through the Attainment Scotland Fund and universal support available right across Scotland. Up to 133 secondary schools are being supported by Scottish Attainment Challenge funding following the recent expansion of this programme, while a further 45 have received funding to support innovative projects through the Attainment Challenge Innovation Fund, including some benefitting as part of projects delivered across school clusters.

The first table below shows the funding to individual schools from the Scottish Attainment Challenge and the Innovation Fund. The second table below shows the allocations for the secondary school programme across the 9 Challenge Authorities.

From financial year 2017-18 the additional £100 million per annum that will be raised each year from our Council Tax reforms will be allocated directly to schools. It is likely that the vast majority of publicly funded schools will receive funding.
