Attainment Scotland Fund evaluation: headteacher survey 2019 - technical report

The Technical report is a companion document to the Headteacher Report 2019. It sets out the sample, methodology, survey questions and response rates.


1. At the start of the 2018/19 financial year, 74 schools were in receipt of Schools' Programme funding. During the course of the financial year one school closed and, therefore, did not have a full year's spend. At the end of the financial year there were 73 schools in receipt of Schools' Programme funding, resulting in 73 schools in receipt of funding for the remainder of the 2018/19 financial year.


3. 'Lower', 'mid' and 'upper' ranges of PEF allocation are based, respectively, on the lower 25% of schools, middle 50% of schools, and upper 25% of schools in terms of PEF allocation in 2018/19.
