Prior to the introduction of the National Funding Formula (NFF) in 2018-19, the Government allocated school funding at local authority level only, not at school level. The funding allocated to each school in 2017-18 by local authorities can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-block-funding-allocations-2017-to-2018.

For 2020-21, the Department has published provisional school level allocations based on what they attract under the NFF, which can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-funding-formula-tables-for-schools-and-high-needs-2020-to-2021. The provisional allocations for Harborough can be found in the attached table. Local authorities continue to be responsible for determining final allocations, in consultation with local schools, and will inform schools of their budgets for 2020/2021 early next year. The Government has committed in future to deliver funding directly to schools through our single national formula, rather than local formulae set independently by each local authority.
