The Government are seeking views on proposals to introduce a national funding formula for schools. The consultation sets out how they plan to deliver a fair, transparent funding system where the amount of funding children attract for their schools is based on need and is consistent across the country.
This is the first of 2 planned consultations. At this stage the Government are seeking views on:
- the principles that underpin the formula
- the pupil characteristics and school factors we include in the formula
Devon County Council finance officials are meeting with head teachers this week to develop a draft response, however staff, governors, and parents can also respond to the Government consultation.
