The Scottish Attainment Challenge was launched in 2015 and is funded by several programmes including Pupil Equity Funding. A total of £750m has been spent in the five years to 2021. The Scottish Government has said it will continue the fund and increase the amount of funding to £1bn over five years from 2021-26. The Committee wants to know how well this money has supported children from deprived backgrounds and the impact of the Scottish Attainment Challenge support on the attainment gap.
