DfE announces funding increase for Schools

The Government has announced that the South West will get a five per cent increase in per pupil funding in the next financial year. Along with the East Midlands, that’s the highest percentage regional rise in the country and compares with London on 3.2 per cent and the North West on 4.1 per cent.

The new allocations mean just over £19 million extra for schools in Devon; £228 more for each pupil in a primary school and £184 for each secondary student. But the new figures mean Devon still lags behind the national average with every pupil worth £263 less than their counterparts throughout the country.

Devon will also get an extra £6 million next year to help vulnerable children with special needs.

2020-21 School Funding Consultation

On 11 October 2019 Government released the Schools Funding indicative figures for 2020-21 and as a result further details to support the consultation.

We have provided additional information to the consultation to run alongside the document previously shared:

Also , a reminder that the consultation closes on Friday 18 October and that each school may send in one response. If you are a Federation or MAT please identify all school numbers within your response if reply on behalf of all schools.
