4 School Funding Jan Powley

5  Current spending on schools in England relatively protected  3.0% real terms rise in expenditure from 2010 to 2014  A number of reforms made to the funding system – PPG, simpler funding formulae  Even before PPG a substantial level of funding targeted at deprivation School Funding

6  In 2010-11 funding per pupil was 35% higher amongst the most deprived set of primary schools than amongst the least deprived  41% higher amongst the most deprived secondary schools than the least deprived  By 2014-15 the figures have increased to 42% and 49% respectively as a result of PPG School Funding

7  Squeezes on public sector pay mean actual costs for schools were likely to have increased by less than inflation  This may explain why the school workforce has not fallen since 2010  450,000 teachers – number has held steady  Increase in TA’s from 210,000 to 240,000 by 2013 School Funding

8  However, significant cost pressures are now emerging  Overall pupil numbers growing by 7% 2016-2020  Cost of employing staff will rise  NI increases due to the end of contracting out  Increased employer pension contributions  Upward pressure on public sector pay levels if private sector earnings continue to recover  Costs to schools estimated to increase by 11.7% between 2014-15 and 2019-20 School Funding

9  Each LA receives DSG which it has to spend on schools  Can retain some money to spend on central services for all LA maintained schools  LAs allocate the vast majority to schools using a locally-determined formula School Funding changes

10 YearDescription of Reforms 2010-11Specific grants streamlined into DSG 2011-12Introduction of PPG 2012-13More responsibilities devolved to maintained schools Extension of PPG to cover pupils eligible for FSM in the past six years – “Ever 6” 2013-14Introduction of simpler local funding formulae PPG level set higher for primary schools 2014-15PPG increased by more for primary schools 2015-16Reforms to allocation of grant to LA’s Changes to School Funding System

11  Since 2010 a cash-terms freeze in all existing school funding per pupil  Creation of PPG  Net result is that the most deprived schools have seen the largest increases in funding  Smaller increases in less deprived schools  In some cases falls in funding per pupil 2010 Spending Review Settlement

12  PPG initially set at £488 eligible for FSM  Expanded to FSM6 – Ever 6  Higher level to primary schools £1,320  Secondary £935  Differentiation justified on the basis that early intervention is more effective  Improve attainment of disadvantaged pupils ready for secondary school Policy Background

13  Grants to LAs (DSG) not based on an explicit formula since 2004  Allocations based on % increases in funding per pupil until the cash freeze  From 2015 a minimum per-pupil funding formula for DSG  If an LA receives less than the minimum their grant is topped up  Luton receives more so its grant is frozen in cash terms  Government to introduce a national funding formula ‘when the time is right’ Policy Background

14  Until 2013-14 LAs used a wide array of different and historical factors in their own formulae to allocate funding to schools  Complex and arbitrary system  All LAs now use simplified local school funding formulae  Has reduced dependence on out of date factors and increased transparency  Used by EFA to fund academies  Central services now passed to individual schools/academies – can be de-delegated for maintained schools at discretion of schools forum members Funding for schools

16  Population is rapidly expanding – primary school population 8% between 2010 and 2014  Between 2016 and 2020 5% rise forecast in primary and 10% in secondary  Significant pressures on the cost of staff  Upward pressure on public sector pay  Pension and NI costs  11.7% - 16.0% (assuming OBR’s assumptions for likely growth in public sector earnings Future Challenges

17  If cash-flat continues real terms cut of 9% per pupil  Rising to 12% if OBR’s public sector pay assumptions are factored in Future Challenges

18  Revisions to SFVS – subject of consultation about 3 additional questions  2 additional questions are to be added  Both are additions to Section A – The Governing Body and School Staff  Question 8 – Have your pay decisions been reached in accordance with a pay policy reflecting clear performance criteria?
