Focus on raising attainment, 02/07/15 [S]

Funding of over £11 million has been given to seven councils as the first allocations from the Scottish Government’s £100 million Attainment Scotland Fund.

Education Secretary Angela Constance visited Clackmannanshire – one of the seven councils – today as the allocations were confirmed.

Glasgow, Dundee, Inverclyde, West Dunbartonshire, North Ayrshire, Clackmannanshire and North Lanarkshire were announced as the first local authorities to benefit, following the establishment of the fund, in February this year. This funding is targeting local authorities with the highest concentration of primary aged pupils living in deprived areas.
