How should we fund England’s schools?

By Ben Rochelle April 6, 2017 9:00 am

The Whitehouse Consultancy is partnering with The Education Policy Institute to host a timely discussion on the Government’s proposed National Funding Formula (NFF) for schools.

The Government’s planned NFF seeks to address historic regional variations in school funding and funding arrangements for Academies which are still primarily financed on what they would receive as a local authority. However, a lack of additional money into the overall education pot means that many schools are set to lose money because of the new formula while others will gain. Headteachers in London boroughs such as Camden, Lambeth, Lewisham and Hackney for example face nearly three per cent cuts of their funds and are already preparing to make staff redundant and strip out non-essential services.

To discuss the impact of the planned NFF we have a panel including David Laws, Executive Chairman of the Education Policy Institute; Russell Hobby, General Secretary of the National Union of Head Teachers; Emma Knights, Chief Executive of the National Governors Association; and Mark Emmerson, Chief Executive of the City of London Academies Trust.

The date of the event will be confirmed shortly.
