School Funding Consultation 2021-22 to 2023-24

Closed 16 Oct 2020

Opened 11 Sep 2020

Overview

The consultation concerns proposed changes to the Essex Formula for Financing Schools (the Essex local formula) for the financial / academic years 2021/22 – 2023/24.

The consultation is for all primary and secondary schools, both maintained and academies. The Essex local formula 2021/22 will calculate budget allocations for maintained schools between April 2021 and March 2022 and academies between September 2021 and August 2022.

Each individual schools' allocation under the current formula and indicative allocations under the proposed changes is included in Annex A.

Why We Are Consulting

We are seeking views on the proposed phased move from the Essex local formula to the National Funding Formula (NFF) over two years (2021/22 to 2022/23), except for the primary lump sum which will move to the NFF over the next three years (2021/22 to 2023/24). This exception is proposed following discussions with the Essex Schools Forum to mitigate the full impact of the reduction in the lump sum for primary schools.

What Happens Next

The results of this consultation will inform the Authority's final proposals which will be presented to Schools Forum on 10th November 2020 for Forum's endorsement.
