Thank you to schools that took part in the consultation. Please find below the Consultation Report and Record of Decision.

The School Funding consultation proposes a number of changes to our Local Funding Formula which is used to calculate your annual School budget.  This consultation is necessary as the Government has announced additional funding for schools next year and this consultation contains a number of proposals which will affect the amount of funding your school receives next year. 

All maintained schools, academies and free schools in the area covered by Kent County Council are encouraged to respond to this consultation.

Responses will be shared with the Schools’ Funding Forum at their meeting on 29 November 2019.  The Forum will be asked to make recommendations to the Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education who ultimately takes the decision(s) involving any changes to the Local Funding Formula.

Please read the information in the Documents section below and then complete the online form to share your views by Monday 18 November 2019.
