Details

Recoupment is a method of adjusting a dedicated schools grant (DSG) allocation 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 and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) calculates the adjustment of the DSG allocation for eligible academies in 2015 to 2016, 2016 to 2017, and 2017 to 2018.
