S5W-20908: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 10 January 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the Education Support Fund reducing, what consideration it has given to creating a variation of the services pupil premium.

Answered by: John Swinney 17 January 2019

There are no plans to implement a Service Pupil Premium in Scotland. The Education Support Fund has been additional to, not instead of, the existing, and different, UK policy measures which support armed forces children’s education. These include Additional Support for Learning legislation in Scotland and the Service Pupil Premium in England.
