Impact on Grant Aided Expenditure (GAE) Allocation

The Primary Indicator determining the GAE allocation for Primary School Teaching Staff is based on the number of primary school pupils with the Secondary indicator being the percentage of pupils in small schools (roll less than 70 pupils averaged over 2 years).  The pupils from Glencorse PS are designated to attend a school which has a roll over 70 pupils.  This will result in a reduction in the small school GAE for those Glencorse pupils equating to approximately £11,000.

However Midlothian Council contributes to the GAE floor mechanism thus will not see a reduction in overall Scottish Government Grant - GAE Impact. Nil
