School Funding

At a meeting of the Schools Forum on 10th November 2020, members considered the responses to the Consultation and approved the recommendation to move the Essex Formula to the National Funding Formula [NFF] over 2 years. This was with the exception of the lump sum for Primary Schools, which will move to the NFF over 3 years AND it was noted that the Secretary of State has approved the disapplication request to use road distance for the “sparsity” factor rather than “as the crow flies”.
