School Funding Formula Consultation 2022-2023

Closed 10 Nov 2021

Opened 21 Oct 2021


A national funding formula (NFF) was introduced for schools from 2018/19 and as in previous years, in 2022/23 local authorities will continue to decide, following consultation with their schools and Schools Forum, whether this formula is applied or a locally determined formula is used.

Why your views matter

In July 2021 the DfE announced that local authorities will continue to have flexibility to set a local funding formula in 2022/23.  It is a DfE requirement that all schools are consulted annually on any proposed changes to the schools funding formula.
