Principals consult with staff, parents and carers to determine the best way to support the learning needs of students in their schools. The School Planning and Reporting - Equity Funding Support Package (PDF 305 KB) is available for principals.
Some schools can choose to combine their equity funding with other funding sources to better support the needs of students. Whole of school programs and strategies may also support particular groups of students or individual students. For ideas on how schools are using their equity funding see school stories – using RAM funding.
All schools have a school plan which must show their school community how they propose to support students. Accountability for the effective use of funds to improve student learning occurs through the annual report.
The equity funding support package includes:
- Using equity funding for students from low socio-economic background (PDF 313 KB)
- Using equity funding for students requiring low level adjustment for disability (PDF 275 KB)
- Using equity funding for Aboriginal background (PDF 319 KB)
