1 Cabinet Member for Education & Skills School Formula Review 2015/16 January 2015 Report by Executive Director Care, Wellbeing & Education Ref No: ES09(14/15) Key Decision: Yes Part I Electoral Divisions: All Executive Summary Changes to the distribution of funding to schools require formal consultation with school governing bodies and with the Schools Forum. Proposed changes are published in a consultation document which is sent to all schools, academies and free schools in West Sussex. Responses to the consultation are taken into account in making final recommendations to the Cabinet Member for changes to the distribution of funding for schools. This report sets out proposed changes to the formula that will be used in the distribution of funding from the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) Schools Block Individual Schools Budget for all mainstream schools and academies in West Sussex in 2015/16. Recommendations It is recommended that the Cabinet Member endorse the proposals detailed in paragraphs 3.1 to 3.4. In particular to support recommendations: 1. To rationalise deprivation funding by setting band options described in Option 2 and paragraph To remove the sparsity factor for the secondary phase - paragraph To adjust funding for new schools and those growing as a result of a change of character. Adjustment to be made in the following financial year if the variation between estimated numbers and actual numbers on roll at the October census date is 27 or more for the primary phase or 20 or more for the secondary phase paragraph To note the decisions of the Schools Forum on 4 December 2014 to approve the de-delegation of funding for specific services for maintained primary and secondary schools for 2015/ Background and Context Schools are funded through the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) rather than through Revenue Support Grant and Council Tax. The DSG comprises three funding blocks Schools, Early Years and High Needs. The Schools Block is split into the Individual Schools Budget (ISB) and Central

2 Expenditure. The ISB is distributed to all mainstream schools and academies through the West Sussex funding formula which reflects County Council funding policies e.g. pupil teacher ratios for each Key Stage, special educational needs and deprivation etc., but also must be compliant with national financial regulations for schools. 2. Consultation 2.1 Changes to the distribution of funding to schools require formal consultation with school governing bodies and with the Schools Forum. Proposed changes are published in a consultation document which is sent to all schools, academies and free schools in West Sussex. Responses to the consultation are taken into account in making final recommendations to the Cabinet Member for changes to the distribution of funding for schools. 2.2 Fifty mainstream schools and academies submitted written responses to the consultation. 2.3 The Cabinet Member for Finance has been consulted and endorses the recommended proposals. 3 Proposed Funding and Formula Changes 3.1 Deprivation West Sussex County Council total expenditure on deprivation using the Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index (IDACI) is below average at 2.61% in comparison with 4.29% nationally. The deprivation formula in 2014/15 allocates funding on the basis of 6 bands of IDACI data with weighted unit values reflecting the level of deprivation. However, IDACI weighted unit values for each band in West Sussex are at significant variance with national averages although these reflect a number of different approaches in local authorities that use IDACI as a deprivation measure. West Sussex County Council is committed to maintain core deprivation funding in each phase and to differentiate distribution to recognise the impact that disadvantage can have on learning, to improve outcomes for all children and accelerate the progress of the most vulnerable The consultation document set out two options for the rationalisation of deprivation funding: Option 1 proposed two indicative unit values per phase, one for Bands 1 and 2 and one for Bands 3 to 6 with the value of Bands 3 to 6 weighted 1.5 times higher than Bands 1 and 2. The option would increase total funding for Bands 1 and 2 i.e. it allocates more funding to the least disadvantaged pupils and reduces funding for Bands 3 to 6 i.e. it allocates more funding to the least disadvantaged pupils and decreases funding for the most disadvantaged pupils. Option 2 used evidence from government research commissioned some years ago that indicates that the least disadvantaged pupils are

3 five times more likely to meet expected levels in key subjects in primary and six times more likely in secondary. Option 2 is closest to the current arrangements for the distribution of deprivation in West Sussex. The option meant that the indicative value of Band 6 would be five times greater than Band 1 in the primary phase and six times greater in the secondary phase. However, in comparison with 2014/15 arrangements, the unit values for pupils in Bands 1 and 2 would increase but Bands 3 to 6 would decrease The consultation document included a spreadsheet that set out the indicative financial impact of both options. With the agreement of the Schools Forum, the spreadsheet set out anonymised data for schools with the greatest indicative budget gain as well as those with the highest budget reductions after the application of the cap on gains and minimum funding guarantee protection. The spreadsheet was based on 2014/15 pupil and IDACI data which will be updated for the calculation of 2015/16 school budgets The majority of responses from schools agreed the differentiation of funding to support pupils with higher levels of deprivation and at greater risk of low achievement. There was a majority preference for Option 2 which creates less funding turbulence than Option 1. Concerns were expressed about the impact on schools of the redistribution of funds although there would be some protection through the minimum funding guarantee It is recommended Option 2 be implemented and that that the band weightings for the allocation of deprivation funding in 2015/16 be set as follows: 3.2 Sparsity IDACI Band Weighting Indicative Value Primary phase P Band P Band P Band P Band P Band P Band Secondary phase S Band S Band S Band , S Band , S Band , S Band , In 2014/15 a sparsity factor was introduced to the secondary formula. The reason for this was that the School Funding Reform in 2013/14 specified a maximum lump sum of 150,000 for both the primary and secondary phases. This reduced the secondary lump sum from 242,000 and the

4 funding was redistributed through the Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 per pupil funding which increased significantly. However, the lump sum reduction had adverse impact on Rydon Community College which is the sole intermediate secondary school in West Sussex with Years 6, 7 and 8 only and fewer than 480 pupils on roll Following consultation with schools and the Schools Forum, a sparsity lump sum of 50,000 was introduced in 2014/15 for Rydon. However, the government has introduced a new sparsity eligibility criterion for 2015/16 using average year group size and Rydon is no longer eligible. There is a proposed consultation about school organisation in the Storrington/Steyning area which could result in changes in Until the outcome of the consultation is implemented it is important that Rydon is funded to operate effectively. The consultation document set out two funding options: (1) Increase the secondary lump sum from 150k to 175k (the maximum now permissible) with reduced KS3 and KS4 per pupil funding (about 25pp) (2) Support Rydon by de-delegating funding for schools in financial difficulty (about 4.50pp) Increasing the lump sum would provide a more sustainable solution than de-delegating funding since the total sum de-delegated annually is affected by academy conversions. Option 2 would require consensus from maintained secondary schools to de-delegate for 2 years Responses from small secondary schools indicated a preference to increase the lump sum since this would provide increased funding stability to them. The majority of the secondary schools responding indicated support for de-delegation as an interim approach pending the outcome of the proposed formal consultation about school organisation in the Steyning/Storrington area As an interim measure it is recommended that no change is made to the secondary lump sum in 2015/16. Maintained secondary phase Schools Forum representatives agreed de-delegation of funding for schools in financial difficulty for 2015/16 on 4 December It is also recommended that the sparsity factor for the secondary phase be removed from the West Sussex funding formula for 2015/ Variations to pupil numbers Schools are normally funded on the basis of lagged pupil numbers i.e. October 2013 census for 2014/15 school budgets. However, estimated pupil numbers can be used for new schools and those adding year groups as a result of a change of character following formal consultation and statutory notices. Differences in actual and estimated pupils may be corrected in the following financial year which requires a new policy for such adjustments.

5 3.3.2 The consultation document included a proposed policy that where school budgets are based on estimated pupil numbers and the variation between estimated numbers and actual numbers on roll at the October census date is 27 or more for the primary phase or 20 or more for the secondary phase, an adjustment could be made to the school budget in the following financial year. The proposal is based on the pupil:teacher ratio underlying the current primary and KS3 per pupil funding values All responses supported the policy that would adjust budgets at growing schools in the following financial year. There was some confusion between the arrangements for the Growth Fund which is allocated to schools affected by demographic pupil increases or a change of PAN requiring additional classes to be set up, and the new policy which applies only to new schools growing incrementally and those where pupil numbers are growing as a result of a change of character e.g. infant becoming primary It is recommended that adjustments to funding for new schools and those growing as a result of a change of character be made in the following financial year if the variation between estimated numbers and actual numbers on roll at the October census date is 27 or more for the primary phase or 20 or more for the secondary phase. 4 De-delegated Funding 4.1 De-delegation is a technical term that means that the funding for specified services that is delegated to all mainstream maintained schools and academies is removed from maintained school budgets and managed centrally to provide services to those schools only. De-delegating funding means that the funding is pooled for the benefit of maintained schools for economy of scale or to sustain small services that might otherwise not be available or could be more expensive for schools to buy or provide themselves. 4.2 The specified services are: The Ethnic Minority and Travellers Advisory Service (EMTAS) which supports maintained schools with Black Minority Ethnic (BME) and Gypsy Roma Traveller pupils. Schools in Financial Difficulty (SiFD) which supports maintained schools with unexpected in year cost pressures. Supply cover costs to release County Secretaries of teacher professional associations i.e. National Union of Teachers (NUT), National Association and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT), from timetable to represent West Sussex teaching staff affected by pay, redundancy, disciplinary and grievance issues, or school reorganisation, or elected to national office with professional associations. Free School Meal (FSM) Eligibility Checking Service which verifies parents receipt of specified benefits against a national database to assess the eligibility of children for free meals. Eligibility for free meals affects the allocation of Pupil Premium Grant and funding for the provision of free meals in schools.

6 4.3 The decision to de-delegate funding is made annually by maintained school representatives on the Schools Forum. 4.4 The School Formula Review 2015/16 consultation document reminded schools that there is no statutory requirement for West Sussex to provide these services to schools or academies. Demand for Ethnic Minority and Travellers Advisory Service (EMTAS) and Schools in Financial Difficulty (SiFD) support is volatile according to pupil need/admissions or individual school circumstances. This means that it is difficult to provide sustainable services through an SLA. De-delegation sustains the service for maintained schools and means that EMTAS/SiFD support can continue to be deployed on an as needed basis. All of the services/pooled budgets affected are likely to be reduced each year as a result of academy conversions but maintained schools can still benefit if funds are dedelegated. 4.5 Most of the responses to de-delegation proposals indicated that schools recognized that these services were accessed on an as required basis rather than as an entitlement. Some schools commented that they valued specialist support such as services provided by EMTAS which contributed to improved outcomes for pupils but other schools had no EAL pupils and had not required support to date. 4.6 At the meeting of the Schools Forum on 4 December 2014, maintained schools representatives in both the primary and secondary phases agreed the de-delegation of funding (approximately 1m) for the specified services for 2015/16. 5 Equality Duty An Equality Impact Report has been undertaken and is attached as Appendix 1 to this report. 6. Resource Implications and Value for Money The changes to the deprivation formula will redistribute 10.64m according to the percentage of pupils in each IDACI band at each school and academy. The change will redistribute a higher proportion of funds to schools with pupils in bands 1 to 3 which is where the majority of deprived pupils are placed based on IDACI scores for their home address. It will still allocate a higher unit value for pupils with the highest level of need albeit that this will be a lower sum than in 2014/15. Based on 2014/15 data, the largest indicative cash reduction would be in the order of 73k affecting a large secondary school; the reduction is approximately 1% of the total school budget. The largest indicative cash gain is in the order of 31k which is 0.61% of the total school budget. 7 Risk Management Implications The funding changes and other budget pressures may mean that some schools need to consider staff reductions in order to deliver the curriculum within total funds available in 2015/16; this may result in a cost liability to West Sussex County Council. In order to allow schools to manage the

7 implementation of funding changes the minimum funding guarantee (MFG) protects schools from budget reductions greater than 1.5% per pupil and the cost of the protection is funded by a cap on gains for schools with budget increases. 8 Crime and Disorder Act Implications Not applicable 9 Human Rights Act Implications Not applicable BRIN MARTIN Strategic Commissioner for Learning For Executive Director Care, Wellbeing & Education Contact: Jeanmarie Long, Principal Manager Statutory and Strategic Compliance Tel: Appendices Appendix 1 Equality Impact Report Background Papers None

8 Equality Impact Report Title of proposal School Formula Review 2015/16 Date of implementation April EIR completed by: Name: Tel: Jeanmarie Long Decide whether this report is needed and, if so, describe how you have assessed the impact of the proposal. The School Formula Review 2015/16 consultation document was circulated to all mainstream schools on 5 November Written responses to the consultation were received from fifty schools and academies. A report summarising the consultation responses has been presented to the West Sussex Schools Forum which is a statutory consultation body. At its meeting on 4 December 2014 the Schools Forum agreed the recommended funding changes for 2015/16. The content of the responses has been taken into account in the final recommendations for changes to school funding in 2015/ Describe any negative impact for customers or residents. The impact of changes to the band weightings for the allocation of deprivation funding in 2015/16 will be a redistribution of funding according to the proportion of pupils in each IDACI band at individual schools. This will have the greatest impact on schools with the highest number of pupils in Bands Describe any positive effects which may offset any negative impact. There will be protection against budget reductions through the application of the minimum funding guarantee and this will support schools in managing the impact of any reduction of funding in 2015/ Describe whether and how the proposal helps to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Schools will continue to support pupils with additional/special educational needs no implication for users. 5. Describe whether and how the proposal helps to advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. Not applicable. 6. Describe whether and how the proposal helps to foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. Not applicable. 7. What changes were made to the proposal as a result? If none, explain why.

9 Most responses supported option 2 which is closest to the current funding methodology and which overall has a less significant impact for schools in areas of deprivation than option Explain how the impact will be monitored to make sure it continues to meet the equality duty owed to customers and say who will be responsible for this. The impact of the funding changes will be kept under review through meetings with headteacher representatives and the West Sussex Schools Forum. To be signed by an Executive Director or Director to confirm that they have read and approved the content.
