These guides explain the elements that make up an academy’s funding allocation for the 2015 to 2016 academic year.

They include examples and explanations to help academies and free schools understand how the EFA calculates an allocation.

They explain:

  • changes to academy funding in the 2015 to 2016 academic year
  • the data used in an allocation
  • how these are applied to an academy’s individual circumstances
  • where academies can find further information about their allocation

Separate guides are available for mainstream and for special and alternative provision academies and free schools.
