To ask Her Majesty's Government, based on the latest funding formula, what will be the anticipated funding per pupil of Cheltenham schools in 2019–20; and what the equivalent figure was in 2015–16.
In 2017/18, the average funding for Cheltenham schools was £4,157 per pupil. We do not hold the equivalent figure per pupil for 2015/16, as we have not previously calculated funding on a constituency basis.
In 2019/20, under the national funding formula, illustrative average funding for Cheltenham schools would be £4,310 per pupil, based on 2017/18 pupil data.
Local authorities will continue to set their own local formulae, which will determine individual schools’ budgets in their areas for the next two years, in consultation with local schools.
