Tables showing provisional allocations for the schools, high needs and central school services blocks.
These tables are mainly for schools and local authorities. They cover the national funding formulae allocations.
The ‘NFF summary table’ sets out the combined effect of all the formulae at local authority level.
The ‘Impact of the schools NFF’ table sets out notional school-level allocations for 2018 to 2019, and illustrative school-level allocations for 2019 to 2020. Local authorities will continue set a local formula to distribute funding to schools in their area. This means schools’ actual funding may be different to the amounts shown in these tables.
The ‘Impact of the high needs NFF’ table sets out local authority provisional high needs allocations for 2018 to 2019 and illustrative high needs allocations for 2019 to 2020. This table also explains how we have calculated the allocations.
The ‘Impact of the central school services block NFF’ table sets out local authority provisional central school services allocations for 2018 to 2019, and illustrative allocations for 2019 to 2020. This table also explains how we have calculated the allocations.
High needs funding is funding for children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities who need extra support at school, college or alternative provision settings. Alternative provision settings are for children who can’t go to a mainstream school.
The central school services block is funding that local authorities use to provide services for all schools.
The ‘Schools block: technical note’ explains how the local-authority-level schools block funding have been calculated.
The ‘High needs: technical note’ explains how the local authority high-needs, 2018 to 2019 provisional allocations and the 2019 to 2020 illustrative allocations were calculated.
The ‘Central school services block: technical note’ explains how local authority 2018 to 2019 actual funding rates and provisional funding allocations have been calculated.
