In March 2015, the Education Funding Agency (EFA) published details of local authorities’ schools block funding formulae for the 2015 to 2016 financial year.

The data shows the schools block allocations for each maintained school for the financial year 2015 to 2016, and academy for the academic year 2015 to 2016. It includes all maintained schools and academies in England with ‘schools block pupils’; that is, pupils in national curriculum year groups R to 11 in mainstream schools that are not in high needs units or resourced provision. Schools that do not admit schools block pupils, including special schools, special academies, alternative provision and hospital schools, are not included. It is accompanied by a guidance document to help users understand the fields in the dataset. We publish this information to provide transparency on how public money is spent.

The allocations shown relate only to schools block funding, and do not include funding that maintained schools and academies may additionally receive for early years pupils, pupils in high needs units or resourced provision, or post-16 funding. For academies the data also does not include some additional funding they receive direct from the EFA, such as start-up grants. Academies shown are as at 31 March 2015.

We have also published information on post-16 2015 to 2016 allocations and you can still access 2014 to 2015 schools block allocations.
