Academies and dedicated schools grant: recoupment

Guides outlining how the Education Funding Agency calculates the adjustment of the dedicated schools grant allocation for academies.


Recoupment is a method of adjusting a dedicated schools grant (DSG) to take account of the conversion of a maintained school into an academy. From 2015 to 2016 this also includes new provision academies and free schools from their second year of opening.

These guides are to help local authorities understand how the Education Funding Agency (EFA) will calculate the adjustment of DSG allocation for eligible academies in 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017
