September 28th, 2015

A consultation is open on the next academic year’s school finance regulations (see the DfE website for details).

The proposed regulations largely provide for the same arrangements as last year, but makes six proposed changes to the:

  • Ability of local authorities to carry forward any unspent falling rolls fund or new schools fund;
  • Ability of local authorities to use place-based funding for 2 year olds;
  • Definition of amalgamated schools;
  • Budgets of closed and amalgamated schools;
  • Expenditure a local authority can incur from their non-schools education budget; and
  • Authorised expenditure in respect of Children and Young People with High Needs.

The deadline for responses is 13 November 2015.
