To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment her Department has made of the effect of changes to school funding on schools in Sheffield.

Our proposals for funding reform will mean that schools and local authority areas will, for the first time, receive a consistent and fair share of the schools budget, so that they can give every child the opportunity to reach their full potential.

For Sheffield local authority, the proposals would mean an increase in schools funding of 4.6%. On funding for pupils with high needs, Sheffield local authority would see an increase of 13.0%.

The current consultation is open until 22 March, and we are keen to hear views from as many schools, governors, local authorities and parents as possible. We will publish our response to the consultation, including details of representations received, in due course.
