The Fair Funding to Achieve Excellence and Equity in Education consultation invited views on the current funding of education, and the principles and considerations for future funding arrangements, including national consistency, delegation of responsibility, accountability and
reporting. It also covered the support required by headteachers under a more devolved funding approach. The consultation ran from 15th June
2017 – 13th October 2017.
This report reviews the 85 written responses to the consultation. In addition, 6 focus groups were conducted with headteachers across Scotland and the main messages from these discussions are included in this report.
