consultations open on school funding

15 April 2011
This week has seen the Government launch two consultations. The main consultation focuses on developing a new funding framework for schools, with the supplemental consultation focusing on Academy funding for the academic year 2012/13. The consultations are running alongside each other and close on 25 May 2011. The Government proposes to consult on more detailed plans later this year. The current system means that there are massive regional variations on the funding schools receive per pupil. The Government seeks to introduce a funding system which distributes the £35 billion budget fairly among pupils and which is not dependent on where they live. The Academy funding consultation invites views on three proposed funding options in an attempt to reform the current system which the government believes lacks transparency, is prone to error and is administratively inefficient. As with any redistribution of wealth, there will be winners and losers and we will await with interest the more detailed proposals later this year.
