Home link staff play a valuable role in our education system. I see increasing numbers of schools opting to use pupil equity funding to establish much greater proficiency and effectiveness in home school link workers, and as a consequence of those efforts, pupil attendance, participation and attainment are improving.

The Government works actively with our local authority partners on the resourcing of all aspects of the education system. As I indicated, we see strong and effective practice emerging out of pupil equity funding, which is strengthening the areas of activity in which Mary Fee is interested.
