The drop comes as the 2021-22 Covid ‘uplift’ in Pupil Equity Funding is removed, meaning some schools will be over £90,000 worse off in 2022-23.

The total amount being spent by the Scottish government on the Pupil Equity Fund (PEF) will decrease by £16.5 million in the coming year, going from approximately £147 million in 2021-22 to £130.5 million in 2022-23.
