191 (58) SCHOOLS FUNDING FORMULA 2015-16 – The Director of People submitted a report which provided an update with regards to the 2015-16 funding allocations for the Dedicated Schools Grant and the amount available for individual School Budgets, and sought approval to the change in unit values for the 2015-16 schools funding formula.
The schools block allocation for North Lincolnshire 2015-16 was £99.014m of which 99.5% was used to fund maintained schools and academies.
In accordance with the Education Funding Agency’s (EFA) Operational guide ‘Schools revenue funding 2015 to 2016’, Local Authorities were required to inform EFA by 31 October 2014 their indicative school funding formula details. The unit values were based on indicative levels of funding which included the additional £3.7m allocation for North Lincolnshire.
On 17th December the EFA published the 2015-16 Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) Allocations for 2015-16. This was based on October 2014 School Census data and the allocation for North Lincolnshire was £119.877m.
The report set out the final proposals for the North Lincolnshire schools funding formula 2015-16, and presented three options for consideration.
Resolved – (a) That option 2 (to update the Age Weighted Pupil Unit (AWPU) values to £3,085 per primary pupil and £4,240 per KS3 secondary pupil) be the preferred option for the schools funding formula unit values 2015-16, and (b) that the factors approved are used to calculate the individual schools budget shares for mainstream schools within North Lincolnshire 2015-16.
