10/02/2021 - School Funding 2021/22 - ES14 (20/21)

(1)The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills has agreed the proposals in relation to the local funding formula for mainstream schools as set out in section two of the report and specifically at paragraph 2.26 to:

Ø  Continue to protect the primary lump sum at a rate of £130,000, by continuing to scale back the primary unit values for Low Prior Attainment (LPA) from the National Funding Formula (NFF) primary unit value,

Ø  Continue to use 50% of the Sparsity funding that the County Council receives through the NFF to fund the payment of an additional transitional sparsity lump sum to those primary schools with less than 150 pupils.

Ø  Set the Minimum Funding Guarantee level at 2% to ensure that all mainstream schools benefit by this increase in their pupil-led funding.
