Schools Forum 2020

Revised School Funding levels for 2020/21

Following advice from the DFE that the high needs transfer cannot be made, £1.1m of additional funding will be allocated to schools in 2020/21. A meeting was held on 19 February 2020 with the Cabinet Member for Children and Families and school representatives to determine how this additional funding should be allocated.  

Several options were considered and the agreed approach was to use the low cost high incidence formula factor to support schools with higher levels of special educational needs.

Subject to any further comments from the DFE these figures will be used for 2020/21.
