Reformed funding system: operational implications guidance for local authorities
Guidance for local authorities and their schools in planning the local implementation of the reformed funding system for 2013 to 2014.
Authorities need to decide what factors they wish to include in the new simplified primary and secondary formula from 2013 to 2014.
This guidance aims to assist local authorities and their schools forums in planning the local implementation of the reformed funding system for 2013 to 2014.
A useful first step may be to identify all factors in their current formula which are not compliant with those allowed under the new system. They will need to determine how to allocate all funding through factors which are allowable and plan the balance between those factors.
