Fund to Help Meet Pupil Potential Motion, 16/02/15 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 16 February 2015 by Hanzala Malik (Lab) on  New £100 Million Fund to Help Meet Pupil Potential. The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament understands that pupils from the poorest parts of Scotland will be helped to meet their potential through a new £100 million fund; understands that the Attainment Scotland Fund will be spent over four years on primary schools in the most deprived areas; understands that the Labour party has backed the plan; notes that the focus on standards in reading and counting draws on what it considers the successful London Challenge scheme introduced in 2003, and believes that this should help close the attainment gap between pupils in schools across Scotland.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Business Bulletin 16 February 2015 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
