The national funding formula for schools is used to determine Schools Block allocations for local authorities. Local authorities will continue to set local formulae to determine individual schools’ budgets in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

In July, the Department will publish details of the local schools funding formulae in 2018-19. This will include total funding distributed by each local authority through their local funding formula.

This information can be compared with the Schools Block allocations that the Department has published:
