Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 30 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what assessment it has made of the impact that receiving no Pupil Equity Funding will have on (a) teaching, (b) learning and (c) morale in the schools affected.

Answered by: John Swinney 12 December 2017

Pupil Equity Funding (PEF) is additional to the core funding that local authorities receive. All schools could benefit, either directly or indirectly, as a result of the improved partnerships, increased resources, and opportunities for professional learning that Pupil Equity Funding provides.
