Funding 67: Consultation – Schools Funding Arrangements 2023-24 Reminder – Documentation

Schools Funding Arrangements 2023-24

The Consultation documents can be found on the main Consultation website: Consultations – Support for schools and settings (

In 2023-24, as in previous years, the local authority will continue to set a local schools’ funding formula, in consultation with its schools, under what is known as a ‘soft’ National Funding Formula (NFF).  The government have recently sought views on implementing a ‘direct’ NFF from 2027-28, which will determine school funding allocations directly, rather than a local funding formula.

As we continue to see pressures in fuel, cost of living and the overall funding demands within the council, the local authority acknowledges the need to make the consultation and information events via a virtual setting again to allow people to attend. We encourage you to share your views with us during these events and respond to the consultation.

The virtual meetings to take place as shown below:

Date Time
Wednesday 5th October 2022 1:30pm – 4:30pm
Thursday 6th October 2022 9.30am – 12.30pm

Online bookings are now closed.
