Information to help enable local authorities to specify their schools funding formulae.
The authority proforma tool (APT) allows local authorities to specify their schools funding formulae. This in accordance with arrangements set out by the Secretary of State for Education.
It allows local authorities to model different options for the funding formulae. It also captures the data we require to calculate academy budgets and recoupment deductions to dedicated schools grant allocations.
Accessing the APT
On 14 December, each local authority received an email which provided details of how to access their APT. If your local authority has not received this email, please contact us.
Your APT is pre-populated with the schools block dataset for 2019 to 2020.
Completing the APT
Use the instructions to help you complete your APT.
