Academies general annual grant allocation guides: 2019 to 2020

Guidance for academies on general annual grant allocation statements for the 2019 to 2020 academic year

Introduction

The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) allocates funding every year to open academies, including free schools, university technical colleges (UTCs), special schools and alternative provision (AP) academies.

Each academy receives a general annual grant allocation statement, which is uploaded to the ESFA’s Information Exchange portal.

We’ve produced a number of guides to help explain the statement. There are different guides produced for different types of academies, including those opening in-year.

Read the guide alongside your 2019 to 2020 statement to understand the funding your academy will receive, how we’ve calculated it, the funding factors we’ve applied and the sources of the data used.
