The Schools White Paper: Opportunity for all, published in March 2022, announced that Priority Education Investment Areas will receive a share of around £40 million of funding to address local needs.

The previous Opportunity Areas make up 12 of the 24 Priority Education Investment Areas. They will receive funding to support targeted interventions to improve attainment in literacy and numeracy at key stage 2 and 4, in line with the priorities for each area. Delivery of this support will commence this academic year.
