Pupil Equity Fund (PEF)
The Pupil Equity Fund is being provided as part of the £750 million Attainment Scotland Fund which will be invested over the current parliamentary term (2016 to 2021).
The Pupil Equity Fund is allocated directly to schools and targeted at closing the poverty related attainment gap. In 2017 to 2018, £120 million will be distributed.
Every council area is benefitting from Pupil Equity Funding and 95% of schools in Scotland have been allocated funding for pupils in P1-S3 known to be eligible for free school meals.
This funding is to be spent at the discretion of the head-teacher working in partnership with each other and their local authority. Schools will now have their plans in place for using their funding and will be implementing those plans.
