To ask the Scottish Government how much it has already allocated to each local authority for the Pupil Equity Fund in (a) 2017-18 and (b) 2018-19.
Answered by: John Swinney 10 November 2017
The local authority and school level allocations of Pupil Equity Funding in 2017-18 are available on the Scottish Government website at http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Education/Schools/Raisingeducationalattainment/pupilequityfund/Schoolallocations.
The total amount of Pupil Equity Funding allocations for 2018-19 will be confirmed in the draft budget next month with the provisional local authority allocations contained within the Local Government Finance Circular which will issue the same day. Both the final local authority level and school level allocations will be confirmed early next year.
