Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 14 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how many full-time equivalent teachers were funded by the pupil equity fund in each of the last three years, broken down by those employed (a) in early learning and childcare settings, (b) in primary schools, (c) in secondary schools, (d) in special schools and (e) centrally, also broken down by local authority.

Answered by: John Swinney 12 January 2018

Information on teachers funded through thePupil Equity Fund and working in the early learning and childcare sector is not held centrally.

The Pupil Equity Fund was not available until after the September 2016 census so data is only shown for 2017.
