Launch of Schools Funding 2018-19 Devon Consultation

The Schools Funding 2018-19 Devon Consultation is now L I V E and we would encourage all schools to consider proposals from the Local Authority to implement funding locally pending the transition towards a National Funding Formula by 2020.

Following the DfE announcement in mid-September together with the publication of notional funding levels at individual school level, the Local Authority has now received the underlying data and overall level of funding for Devon.

Whilst Devon’s overall Schools budget for 2018-19 will see an increase of £7.5 million, this year’s consultation will be more complex than usual around LA proposals to create the least amount of turbulence during the 2 year transition period from a Local to National Funding Formula.

The consultation documentation provides full details of the proposals together with an online Budget calculator. Further explanation will be provided together with the opportunity for discussion and questions at the forthcoming Funding Consultation Briefing events (details below) being held later this week which we would encourage you to attend.

The consultation will run from Monday 16th October and close at noon on Wednesday 1st November 2017.
