  • Will continue with arrangement where LAs with less than 90% of 3yo pop’n take up free entitlement funded as though they did

    • No longer a benefit for us

Current 2011 12 headroom
Current 2011/12 headroom

£7.853m in 2011/12 and an ongoing £597,000 in 2012/13

Current 2011 12 headroom1
Current 2011/12 headroom

  • Significant one off funding

    • Consider risk appetite for budget assumptions around on going underspends

      • Eg:- SEN statementing and out county placements

    • Consider one off funding for costs of restructuring and redundancy in schools

      • Potential MFG issues

Budg et issues mainstreaming grants

    • changes in overall pupil numbers

      • the removal of funds allocated on the basis of sixth form pupil numbers

  • any clearly identified one off items.

  • Settlement added diploma grant funding £811,000 not previously referenced

    • School Standards Grant (SSG and SSG-P)

      • combination of flat rate and per pupil will broadly fit

    Budg et issues mainstreaming grants4
    Budget issues – mainstreaming grants

    • Specialist School Funding

      • Four schools get part year funding in 2010/11, propose finding £116,000 in 2011/12 to give full year effect

      • Two secondary schools receive no funding, some have second and third specialism. Initially propose the allocations be retained with those schools currently receiving them, seeking to move to move to standard formula over three year period

      • Quirk with 1,001st to the 1,200th pupil not recognised for funding purposes. Cost of a simplification so all pupils above the 1,000th were recognised would be £0.784m

    Budg et issues mainstreaming grants5
    Budget issues – mainstreaming grants

    • School lunch grant

      • retain current formula and include it as part of the school meals management partnership line

    • Ethnic Minority Achievement Grant

      • Schools Forum previously agreed to hold centrally as “needs are real, dispersed and variable so schools are unable to build individual school capacity to meet the needs”

      • Propose to continue

    Budg et issues mainstreaming grants6
    Budget issues – mainstreaming grants

    • Potential headroom and flexibility £19.64m

      • Extended schools funding

      • National Strategies

      • One to one tuition

    • None are currently delegated to individual schools

    • All previously expected to cease

    • Consider first for any Schools Budget flexibility and to offset any top slicing before the grants are added into DSG

    Budget issues equal pay
    Budget issues – Equal Pay

    • Budget strategy for funding Option B

      • Seek borrowing of £80m, revenue funding for costs of borrowing £5.5m pa

      • 2011/12 funds set aside £2.4m

      • £5.5 m revenue cost of borrowing in 2011/12 requires further £3.1m (ongoing provision)

      • 2012/13 further £1.9m ongoing provision

    Budget issues equal pay1
    Budget issues – Equal Pay

    • Effect top slice equally or differentiate?

      • By school type – aided and foundation

      • By school phase

    • Aided schools

      • currently only one claim, but more could be generated if it is successful

      • Potential insurance cover for aided schools

      • Aided schools borrowing from school balances loan scheme

    • Schools Forum 2008 decision set aside £0.5 m per annum was collective with all schools impacted

    • Provision in budget shares for the costs of Pay and Benefits was shared between all schools

      • New cases – Share charged to individual schools £0.280m

      • New cases – Share met centrally £0.355m

    • Propose moving solely the budget provision for new commitments of £0.4m to the Schools Budget and then meeting all the resulting future costs that are funded centrally from that budget

    • Pressure of £0.4 m a year for Schools Budget budget proposals for 2011/12

    Hcc position
    HCC position

    • Current budget guidelines are for 8% cash limit reductions for services for 2011/12 and 2012/13 with activity pressures to be absorbed
