Funding for Schools Conference: Stretching the education budget
“We need a system that funds schools according to the needs of their pupils rather than their postcode.” - Justine Greening MP, Education Secretary
The Government’s proposed national funding formula, unveiled in December 2016, is designed to address the “historical unfairness” which has seen significantly more money allocated to schools in large cities. While some areas will benefit from this redistribution of funds, critics of the policy argue it does not do enough to address a longstanding shortfall in school budgets. As the education sector struggles with above inflation cost increases, research by the National Audit Office has shown that schools are facing real term cuts of up to £3 billion. In this increasingly uncertain financial climate, struggling schools are looking to secure alternative sources of funding in the form of grants from the charity sector and generating revenue by renting out unused space or organising fundraisers.
Join us for the Funding for Schools Conference where leading experts will discuss how the latest changes in Government policy will impact on the education sector. Discover how to maximise the pupil premium and other funding sources, identify potential funding opportunities from the third sector and learn how creative solutions can help schools to generate their own revenue.
