The allocation spreadsheet shows:
- School level allocations for mainstream schools. This shows the pupil numbers used to generate the total allocation for each school
- Local authority level allocations for specialist provision. This shows each institution in the local authority, and the number of places used to calculate the overall allocation
Local authorities will receive an allocation for specialist provision in their area, which they must distribute between all providers.
2. How schools will receive their funding
Mainstream academies will receive their grant directly from the education and skills funding agency (ESFA). Mainstream maintained schools will receive their funding via their local authority. Non-maintained special schools will receive their grant directly from the ESFA, in line with their usual funding process. Further information about this is given in the conditions of grant.
3. New and growing schools
Schools which opened between October 2017 and September 2018 will not appear on the census data used. For the September 2018 to March 2019 these schools allocations are on the minimum level of 100 pupils for mainstream schools or 40 places for high needs institutions. New schools will receive an updated allocation in spring 2019 based on their October 2018 pupil numbers to cover the September 2018 to March 2019 period. Schools not fully open in September 2018 and are still growing by adding year groups, will also receive an updated allocation in the spring 2019 to reflect that growth. Further details of these updates will be included alongside the spring 2019 allocations.
4. Data used in the allocations
For 2-4 year olds in mainstream schools, we have used the headcount of children in funded early years places, from the January 2018 census. For pupils in mainstream schools aged 5-16, we have used the headcount of pupils, from the October 2017 census. For pupils in mainstream schools aged 16-19, we have used the pupil numbers from the 2018 to 2019 academic year funding allocations, with full time equivalents (FTEs) as defined below:
|Band||Number of hours||FTE|
We have used the published place numbers for academies for academic year 2018 to 2019 for
special free schools
alternative provision academies
alternative provision free schools
For maintained special schools and pupil referral units we have used the place numbers from the 2018 to 2019 Section 251 budget returns. For some hospital schools, we use the place numbers from the general hospital school census. For hospital schools that do not appear in any census, we are funding at the minimum level of 40 places.
