Information on academy trust transfers (where academies move from one trust to another) and grant funding is published annually in a statistical official release. Information on transfer grant funding provided during the five financial years to the end of March 2018, is available on GOV.UK. Information on transfer grant funding up to the end of March 2019 will be published in the 2018-19 release due in July 2019, and will include funding for schools formerly in Wakefield City Academies Trust (WCAT), because the transfers have taken place during the April to March 2018-19 financial year.

The department has worked with all the schools that were in WCAT and their new trusts to provide appropriate support and resources, including funding, so that each of the schools has what they require to improve pupil outcomes and secure the financial future for those schools.
