The Scottish government will give the money directly to head teachers who will be able to spend it on whatever they think will help them raise attainment in each school.

The cash was originally going to come from changes to council tax bands, but will now come from the government's own resources SNP recently announced.

Education Secretary John Swinney said

"I want every child in Scotland to have the best possible start in life, and it is unacceptable for children from the poorest backgrounds to have their chances limited by circumstances outside their control.

"This government has made clear our priority is to close the poverty-related attainment gap and our new £120m Pupil Equity Funding is aimed at doing just that."

The three Ayrshire schools that will benefit the most are listed below.

Castlepark Primary, North Ayrshire £217,200

Shortlees Primary, East Ayrshire £225,600

Girvan Primary, South Ayrshire £127,200
