Every school is allocated a number of Support for Learning hours (Teacher and PSA) according to the current Moray formula funding model. .The school has the responsibility for timetabling the support for learning staff to best meet pupil ASN needs within their school and to adjust timetables as needs change throughout the year.  Pupil needs can vary daily and as such support is fluid based on changing needs e.g. Some children may be allocated 1:1 support but then depending on needs 3:1 support may be needed
