School Funding Consultation

This consultation closed on 15 March 2017

Consultation Details

The Government is proposing to create a national funding formula for the way every school receives money.

This will change the amount of funding many schools get towards their running costs. Some schools will get more money, others will get less. School budgets are already under pressure due to rising pupil numbers and inflation.

We have calculated that under the proposed new funding formula, 98% of schools in Nottingham would lose out.

The reduction would be to schools’ core budget, which pays for all running costs – at a time when costs are rising and pupil numbers in the city are increasing.

Consultation Results

The results and findings from this consultation are expected 27 March 2017.
