School Funding Reform

Funding arrangements from

April 2014

overview
Overview
  • National context
  • What’s been happening in Devon
  • Formula detail
  • De-delegation/ Central Services
  • High needs and SEN funding
  • Timetable
  • Questions?
national context
National Context
  • Working assumption – NFF from 2015-16
  • Likely to be phased redistribution of funding
  • Pupil led funding – pupil’s needs before institutions
  • Greater autonomy for local decision making – more money out to schools but more responsibility to deliver
what s been happening
What’s been happening
  • MP’s – lobbying for fair funding and recognition of local issues
  • Active members of F40 national formula research team
  • Assessing impact of 13-14 reforms on individual schools
  • Review of SEN and high needs funding
dsg allocation
DSG Allocation
  • Cash flat – no more money
  • Growth has to be absorbed
  • Includes Post 16 and 2 year olds
  • SEN: 0-25
formula detail page 3 11
Formula Detail (page 3 – 11)
  • 13 allowable factors
  • 2 new factors: sparsity and targeted mobility
  • Mandatory thresholds for AWPU, proportion of pupil-led funding and school’s contribution to high needs costs
  • Different lump sum for primary and secondary

5 miles

School B

  • 4 miles

School A

  • 2 miles
  • 3 miles
  • Does School A qualify for sparsity funding?
  • YES - Average distance to 2nd nearest school = 2.38 miles
  • YES – It has fewer than 60 primary pupils
  • How much sparsity funding will it get?
  • LA has set a sparsity lump sum of £60,000 (to match the primary lump sum). School A has 40 pupils. It will therefore attract a sparsity lump sum of £20,000 under the tapering approach. Because the school is two thirds the standard size, it gets one thirds of the sparseness factor.

School C

  • For Low Cost High Incidence (LCHI) SEN- for children who have additionalneed but not necessarily high need
  • Distributed through formula directly into schools budgets
  • School wide – not named children

targeted fund hnb
Targeted Fund - HNB

Support for Element 2 first £6k for High Needs - where formula doesn’t deliver

  • Statements above 3% (P) 2.5% (S) will receive additional funding for the £6,000’s as well as top up
  • All schools with at least one pupil receiving top up must get at least £6,000 (mainly small school issue but applies to all schools)
targeted fund hnb1
Targeted Fund - HNB

Support for Low Cost High Incidence SEN

  • No school will receive less than £5,000 from the LCHI formula

Combined this means that:

  • A school with at least one pupil receiving top up funding must receive a minimum of £11,000 SEN funding
targeted fund hnb2
Targeted Fund - HNB

Transitional protection

  • Interim arrangement for 13/14 ends
  • If a shortfall compared to previous system of fully funding Elements 2 & 3 – 50% protection
  • ONE YEAR ONLY!
  • SNIPS: Special Needs Intervention Panel –Schools. Exceptional circumstances only
high needs element 3
High Needs Element 3
  • Robust process to access top up funding
  • SEN – new ways of working: Education Health Care Plans
  • Need to deliver a single system to access the HNB – fair and consistent
  • See Appendix 3 consultation document
  • Plan for change now!
