S5W-14603: Ross Greer (West Scotland)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 12 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how many members of school staff are employed using pupil equity funding, broken down by staff role.

Answered by: John Swinney 27 February 2018

The number of teachers funded through Pupil Equity Funding (PEF) was given in the answer to question S5W-13385 on 12 January 2018 . All answers to written parliamentary questions are available on the Parliament's website, the search facility for which can be found at http://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusiness/28877.aspx .

Whilst we are aware that PEF is being used in a wide range of innovative ways, the Scottish Government does not hold information on the number of non-teaching school staff funded by PEF. Headteachers will report the use of PEF and impact to date in their schools annual standards and quality report.
