Pupil Equity Funding is money that will go to your child's school to help them provide the best possible opportunities for children's learning. In particular, it is there to help the school support children who experience barriers to learning and who might be falling behind or not getting the same chances in their education because their family is experiencing poverty or other financial difficulties. This money is given to schools as part of the Scottish Government's Scottish Attainment Challenge.
Pupil Equity Funding is designed to support children in Primary 1 to S3 who are eligible and registered for free school meals. Headteachers can also use their judgement to support other children in their school who are affected by poverty.
Your child's Headteacher will have additional resources that they can use to help children achieve their potential at school.
Your child's school will be able to provide further information about how they are using their Pupil Equity Funding.
You can find more in the Information leaflet for Parents and Carers.
