Non-maintained special schools: Model funding agreement

This is a model EFA funding agreement for non-maintained special schools for the 2016 to 2017 and 2015 to 2016 academic year.



Every July, non-maintained special schools (NMSSs) receive an Education Funding Agency (EFA) funding agreement for the academic year.

The EFA contract is for element 1 and 2 funding only. Local authorities will have in place their own contracts for element 3 ‘top up’ funding.
