Scottish government gives 2,513 schools attainment fund money

The Scottish government reveals that most of the country's schools will be handed money from the attainment fund.

 

Ministers are giving head teachers across the country direct access to the £120m.

 

The money is being divided according to how many children in primary classes and the first three years of secondary school are entitled to free meals.

 

The list reveals that 2,513 primary, secondary and special schools will benefit from the new scheme.

 

The money is in addition to the funding schools receive from their local council.
