The Department uses income deprivation affecting children index (IDACI) bands to allocate funding through the schools and high needs National Funding Formulae (NFF). We calculate IDACI bands using IDACI ranks to group Lower Layer Super Output Areas (LSOAs) into seven bands of decreasing deprivation.

The schools NFF allocates funding for pupils aged 5 to 16 in mainstream schools. The data used for the 2023/24 financial year NFF allocations show 30 schools in Feltham and Heston constituency have over 40% of students in IDACI bands A to F. There are 36 schools in Feltham and Heston in scope for the schools NFF.

Schools in Feltham and Heston attract an increase of 7.8% per pupil for their NFF pupil-led funding across two years to academic year 2023/24 compared to 2021/22.

The high needs NFF allocates funding at local authority level. As such, the Department does not hold data on IDACI bands at special and alterative provision school level.
