Introduction
The primary aim of this guidance is to provide information on the indicators and
methodology used in the Kent’s Delegated Funding Formula to determine school budgets.

Delegated formula funding shares are paid from the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) made
available annually to KCC by the Department for Education (DfE). The DSG is paid at a
flat rate for every pupil counted in January (for 2010/11 this rate is £4,280). The count
includes not just those pupils in mainstream schools, but also Early Years children and
pupils receiving their education in other ways, such as home tuition, Pupil Referral Units or
high cost specialist SEN places.

A significant proportion of DSG is therefore provided for services and children not in
mainstream schools, and to provide for services that schools are not responsible for. As a
result, around 91% is allocated to primary, secondary and special schools, with the
remaining 9% retained for central services.

The 91% is known as the Individual School Budget (ISB) and is delegated to schools. The
ISB is distributed to schools by the Delegated Funding Formula which has evolved over a
number of years, driven by legislation that dictates the formula framework, with the aim of
targeting funding to schools in a fair and transparent way. Elected Members ultimately
make decisions on changes to the formula detail, but only after all schools are consulted.
In addition, the Schools’ Funding Forum plays an active role in considering options and
making recommendations for changes to Elected Members. For more details in respect of
the process, please see notes on the Schools’ Funding Forum as shown later in this
guidance in paragraph 10.1.

It is important to note from the outset that schools are free to spend their delegated DSG
funding on supporting teaching and learning in their school; they have the flexibility to
target the funding in the most appropriate way needed to support the education of their
pupils. It is at the discretion of the school to use these resources in the most efficient and
effective way. The formula used to allocate the funding is a method of distribution and is
not intended to dictate spending decisions by the school. As an example, the formula uses
various proxy indicators to calculate an SEN element. This is purely notional and is neither
a minimum nor maximum spend guide. Schools must meet the needs of all pupils’ SEN in
their school from the whole budget, regardless of the notional amount generated by the
formula.

Schools will usually receive notification of their budgets for the forthcoming year during the
first week in March. The funding in this guidance relates to a budget allocation for the
financial year April to March. All pupil-related elements of funding, unless stated, are
based on the January census that precedes the March notifications. Funding is for a 12
month period and is not normally adjusted for individual changes to data during the year.
This principle is intended to give schools certainty over the funding they have available for
the year to assist forward planning. It provides a degree of cushioning against pupil
number reductions as any loss of pupils, typically in September, will not affect the budget
until the following year. There is some assistance for rising rolls – see section 9 below.


                                                                           Back to contents page

                                                                                     2|Page
                                                                         Back to contents page
                                                                                   Rates Table

It is a fundamental principle of formula funding that schools must plan ahead, and manage
changes in pupil numbers and needs during the year without budget adjustments, by
making use of their ability to retain a contingency balance. Primary schools may retain up
to 8% and Secondary schools may retain up to 5% of their budget as unspent funding to
carry forward to the following year. Having delegated as much as possible of the DSG to
schools, the local authority has little flexibility or scope to respond to individual school
requests for budget changes during the year. Unless specified otherwise in this guidance,
no changes will be made to a school’s budget after the start of the year.

The guidance in this document is set out in the same order as the information presented
on the standard budget template used for budget notifications in March.

Section 1 - Age Weighted Pupil Unit (AWPU)
1.1 A school’s financial year runs from April to March and its allocation for the period is
    calculated on the number of pupils in year group’s pre R to yr 11including 16+
    (retakes) on roll as at the January census. Funding will be given for a full twelve
    months based on this count, the funding cannot be adjusted down but may be
    adjusted up if a school triggers rising roll funding (see section 9 for further details).

1.2 For each pupil on roll on the day of the January census, a school will receive a unit of
    funding known as the Age Weighted Pupil Unit (AWPU). A full unit of funding will be
    given regardless of whether or not the pupil is full or part time. The year group of the
    pupil will determine the amount of funding. Weightings are used to reflect the relative
    amounts of funding considered necessary to educate a pupil depending on its stage
    of education. Weightings are the result of earlier discussions, consultations and
    agreements with the Schools’ Funding Forum. The following weightings apply to the
    financial year 2010-11;



               Year Group         Weighting

               * Sixth Form         0.09

       *DSG funding in the main is targeted at pupils in year groups pre-year R to 16+
       (retakes). There are however some exceptions to this where funding is targeted at
       sixth form pupils for the additional cost of teachers on the upper and leadership pay
       scales in the sixth form.

Section 2 - Special Education Needs (SEN) (excluding SEN unit
budgets)
2.1 The funding in section 2 is targeted at pupils with special education needs and is
    distributed on the basis of named pupils, proxy indicators and a lump sum.

     Very Severe and Complex Needs funding (VSCN) pupils - Named pupils

2.2 In order to trigger funding for a pupil with VSCN the pupil must firstly have a
    statement. If a school has a statemented pupil with VSCN then they may submit an
    application for contingency funding. Where eligibility exists, applications will be
    considered by a panel of headteachers. For further details on the criteria and
    application process; please contact one of the following SEN Finance and
    Information Officers (FIO’s):

             Stephanie Rapley - West Kent,
             Telephone: 01732 525028, e-mail: stephanie.rapley@kent.gov.uk

2.3 If a pupil meets the VSCN funding criteria as determined in paragraph 2.2 above, the
    funding will be triggered automatically by the relevant Finance and Information
    Officer (FIO) who will contact CFE Finance and a payment will be made through the
    school’s monthly advance. The FIO will also determine the date of entitlement and
    whether the funding should be back dated.

2.4 Funding will be allocated to reflect the primary need as indentified in the Statement of
    SEN and funding will be allocated on a single need type. The following list details the
    12 different need types:

             Autism band 1 & 2
             Hearing Impairment
             Physical Disability band 1 & 2
             Speech and Language band 1 & 2
             Visual Impairment
             Learning Difficulties band 1 & 2
             Emotional Disturbance & Social Dysfunction band 1 & 2

2.5 For pupils already in receipt of VSCN funding on the day of the January pupil count,
    funding will automatically be generated until the end of the academic year (August).
    The table below details the continuation of VSCN funding depending on the phase of
    education the pupil is attending.

2.6 Pupils who transfer from an infant to a junior school do not need to re-apply for
    funding, it will continue subject to confirmation of the move from the October census.

2.7 Schools who receive pupils transferring from: Primary to Primary, Secondary to
    Secondary and Primary to Secondary school, need to inform the appropriate FIO
    who will advise if there is a need to re-apply for the funding. The FIO will let CFE
    Finance know when agreement has been made to release funding. No VSCN funding
    will be clawed back from a schools initial budget allocation due to the pupil leaving or
    moving to another school.

2.8 For those pupils that are in year groups 11 to 13 an initial allocation of 5/12ths will be
    included in a schools budget. As pupils in those year groups will not necessarily
    continue education into the new academic year (starting in September) a pupil
    verification process will take place during September and October. Where a pupil
    continues education at the same school a payment will be generated for the period
    September to March and included in the schools November monthly advance.

2.9 The following partnerships Ashford One, Ashford Rural, Dartford East, Dartford
    West, Gravesham, Shepway One, Shepway Rural and Swanley and District are all
    part of the Units Review pilot. There is no change to funding for existing VSCN pupils
    in schools in a pilot partnership. From September 2009 any new pupils that meet the
    VSCN criteria and are admitted to a school in one of the pilot areas will have support
    provided to them by the Lead School for the Partnership. For guidance on the new
    Lead School arrangements, please use the following link: Lead School guidance

2.10 An evaluation of the pilot will take place during the autumn of 2010. The evaluation
     will identify options for moving forward with the review in the context of an
     overarching SEN strategy.

     SEN formula allocation – (Proxy indicators)

2.11 The funding is targeted at pupils with SEN. Proxy indicators of SEN numbers are
     used to distribute funding. Two main indicators are used that are considered to
     provide broadly reliable and objective estimates of the typical levels of need that
     schools could experience - pupils’ prior attainment and a measure of a pupil’s home
     area deprivation. A greater weighting of the overall funding for SEN is applied to prior
     attainment as this is believed to be a stronger measure of pupils’ SEN. The overall
     funding pot has roughly been split 75% prior attainment and 25% deprivation.

     Prior Attainment

2.12 Key stage 1 (KS1) prior attainment results for year groups 3 to 6 are used to
     distribute a share of the SEN funding for key stage 2 (KS2) pupils. Weightings are
     applied in the ratio of 15:5:1 depending on the KS1 attainment level achieved. The
     table below summarises how the funding is distributed.

2.13 The KS1 attainment levels are matched to the October census and the % of pupils in
     each category is then applied to the number of pupils at the school on the January
     census.

2.14 Key stage 2 (KS2) prior attainment results for year groups 7 to 11 are used to
     distribute a share of the SEN funding for key stage 3 and 4 pupils. Weightings are
     applied in the ratio of 15:5:1 depending on the KS2 attainment level achieved. The
     table below summarises how the funding is distributed.

     Deprivation Funding

2.16 A Mosaic deprivation weighting is attached to each pupil in the school based on their
     home post code. A company called Experian originally developed Mosaic as a tool to
     identify consumer classification groups. They have now developed a public sector
     version that identifies different segments of the population. A total of 400 data
     variables are used to group the national population into 11 groups and 61 types.
     Each household in the UK is then classified under one of the 61 types.

2.17 Experian has developed a measurement of deprivation for the public sector. Each of
     the Mosaic 61 types of classification has an Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD)
     weighting attached to it. IMD uses the following indicators to determine a weighting
     of deprivation.

      -   Income deprivation (including separate indices for income deprivation affecting
          children and income deprivation affecting older people)
      -   Employment deprivation
      -   Health deprivation and disability
      -   Education, skills and training deprivation
      -   Barriers to housing and services
      -   The living environment deprivation
      -   Crime

2.18 Using the weighting method described above, a score is attached to each post code.
     There are on average in Kent 14 households per post code, the Mosaic type for the
     post code is determined by the highest number of the “same types” in the post code.
     For example if there are two type 1’s and nine types 2’s and three type 3’s then the
     weighting for the post code would be type 2.

2.19 Using the pupils recorded in the pupil census in October, a Mosaic weighting is then
     attached to each pupil and an average “deprivation” score per pupil is calculated for
     the school. This average pupil weighting is then applied to the pupil numbers in the
     school taken from the January census.

2.20 Each unit of Mosaic is given a unit of funding, for example a school with an average
     score of 50 per pupil will receive 50 x no of pupils in the school x unit of funding.
     There are two factors for distribution in the primary phase, an amount for each pupil
     in year group’s pre R to 6 and an allocation for pupils in year groups R to 2. In the
     secondary phase funding is allocated to all year groups in the school including Sixth
     Form.

2.21 This additional funding for year groups pre R to 2 replaced attainment funding
     previously based on baseline scores. As this data was out of date and there were
     questions around its consistency and accuracy, the Schools’ Funding Forum
     recommended as part of a local formula review in 2007-08 that the baseline data
     should not be used to distribute anymore funding. Ideally the funding should have
     been distributed using some form of prior attainment and the obvious replacement
     was foundation stage scores. The Forum felt that they were unable to place enough
     reliance on the foundation scores in order to distribute funding and opted to distribute
     the funding on a deprivation indicator instead.

     Lump sum

2.22 There is an acknowledgement that all schools have core SEN costs and that the
     indicators used to distribute SEN funding may in some instances not be
     representative of the pupils with statements and action plus in the school. Therefore
     a lump sum has been included in the formula to take this into consideration.


     Other SEN/AEN funding

2.23 Please note that an undefined element of AWPU also supports low-level SEN/AEN,
     for example through the presence of a teaching assistant in the classroom.

Section 3 - Additional Education Needs
3.1 This formula component is designed to recognise the range of other additional needs
    of pupils that are not traditionally labelled as SEN. In the main, proxy indicators are
    used to distribute the funding in this section of the formula. The best indicator
    available to measure social need is considered to be a measurement of deprivation;
    therefore a greater share of AEN funding is targeted using Mosaic than in SEN. The
    funding is roughly split 50% prior attainment and 50% Mosaic.

3.2 See paragraphs 2.12 to 2.21 for an explanation of prior attainment and Mosaic
    indicators. In the AEN factors, different rates of funding per unit are applied to each
    school’s prior attainment and Mosaic scores.

     Additional AEN indicators

3.3 Traveller children, Looked After Children (LAC) and children with English as an
    Additional Language (EAL) have all been identified as specific pupil groups that will
    usually have some additional needs, but are not necessarily identified by the other
    SEN or AEN indicators. These pupils will receive funding at £290 per pupil. Eligibility
    is determined by the number of pupils recorded on the January census.

3.4 From April 2010 a new factor has been included in the formula to recognise pupils
    from military families. Not all pupils from military families are eligible for funding. In
    order to be eligible the pupil must be categorised as Mosaic type (category 14 -
    Living in Military Accommodation) and recorded on the January census as a pupil
    from a military family. The method used to apply an IMD weighting to pupils in
    category 14 (see paragraphs 2.16 to 2.21) results in a deprivation weighting of zero,
    this is mainly due to the low levels of crime and high levels of employment on military
    bases. It is acknowledged that children with military parents have additional social
    needs compared to the general population as there is a high level of mobility and
    sustained periods where they are separated from one of their parents due to frequent
    tours of duty. Not all pupils with military families live in military accommodation or are
    recorded against category 14. Where this is the case the Mosiac type attached to the
    post code will be used to trigger deprivation funding.

     Schools in Challenging circumstances and Additional funding for schools with
     high deprivation

3.5 The purpose of this funding is to recognise the additional costs associated with a
    school that has high numbers of deprived pupils (i.e. a critical mass). The rationale
    for distribution of this funding is that there is a point where the resources needed to
    support children with social needs increases at a disproportional rate to the pupil
    numbers, so there comes a point (threshold) where the rate of funding needs to
    increase when SEN/AEN numbers exceed that threshold level.

     Schools in Challenging Circumstances

3.6 The data used in this part of the formula budget was frozen in 2007-08 following the
    formula review. It is likely that this will be reviewed again in 2010-11 prior to the next
    comprehensive spending review (CSR).

     Additional Funding for schools with high deprivation

3.8 A review took place in 2008-09 with the recommendation to distribute funding to
    schools based on a Mosaic threshold. The Mosaic threshold for primary schools is
    currently set at 83 points per pupil and for secondary school’s it is set at 61 points per
    pupil. Funding is triggered when a schools Mosaic score exceeds the threshold, for
    example a primary school with a Mosaic score of 100 per pupil, will receive funding of
    100 – 83 (the threshold) = 17 x the primary unit rate per Mosaic point.

3.9 Initially the intention of the review in 2008-09 was to phase in the change to the
    funding formula for challenging circumstances over a three year period. Due to the
    turbulence this would cause to some school budgets the decision was taken to rollout
    the changes over a 6 year period. Challenging circumstance is currently being
    distributed in the following way 4/6ths of the overall funding on the old formula (see
    paragraphs 3.6 and 3.7 above) and 2/6ths using the new formula (see paragraph 3.8
    above). It is likely that this will be reviewed again in 2010-11 prior to the next
    comprehensive spending review (CSR).

Section 4 - Personalised Learning
4.1 All children are unique with different talents, different strengths and different
    weaknesses. Some children need extra help, support and encouragement to get the
    basics right; others need greater stretch and challenge to make the most of their
    potential. Personalisation is about recognising that each pupil is unique and needs
    their own personalised learning plan. Under the previous government, Ministers
    made available targeted funding for personalisation. Although this was not ring
    fenced, the Schools’ Funding Forum decided it should be identified separately in the
    formula and be subject to separate formula factors.

     Key Stage 1 personalisation (Primary)

4.2 An amount per pupil for all pupils in year groups 1 & 2.

     Key Stage 2 personalisation (Primary)

4.3 An amount per pupil for all pupils in year groups 3 to 6.

4.4 Deprivation- each pupil in year groups 3 to 6, will receive an amount per pupil based
    on their average Mosaic weighting per pupil, multiplied by the unit rate for Mosaic.

4.5 Additional AEN indicators - each Traveller, LAC, EAL and Military child (as per
    definition in paragraphs 3.3 and 3.4) in year groups 3 to 6 will receive funding at a
    fixed rate per pupil. The number of eligible pupils is taken from January 2010 schools
    census.

4.6 Prior attainment - Funding is distributed at a fixed rate per AEN pupil. The number of
    AEN pupils is determined by the criteria set out in paragraphs 2.12 and 2.13 above.
    The overall % of AEN pupils in the school is then applied to the number of pupils in
    year groups 3 to 6. The weightings applied for low, medium and high needs prior

    grounds related expenditure. It includes rates, cleaning, maintenance, utilities and
    caretaking costs. An undefined element of AWPU also contributes to premises
    expenditure

     Premises Lump Sum

6.2 All primary schools receive a lump sum towards the cost of cleaning, building
    maintenance, caretaking and energy costs as there is an acknowledgement that all
    primary schools have a core level of costs that are consistent regardless of the size
    of the school.

     Floor Area

6.3 Each school receives funding at a fixed rate per square metre. The funding is
    targeted at the costs incurred for cleaning, building maintenance, caretaking and
    energy costs. Measurements of the school’s premises areas are taken from the KCC
    Enterprise database and it is the school’s responsibility to ensure that their floor area
    measurements are kept up to date. Schools can access details of their floor area via
    their Interprise system. In order to record a change to a school’s floor area it must be
    logged with:

6.4 For a school to receive an in year adjustment to its premises funding the increase
    generated for the additional floor area must be greater than 1 % of the overall
    schools budget. If the criterion is fulfilled the additional funding will be pro rata from
    the date the new build is complete. Where an increase is recorded and it does not
    trigger additional in year funding the adjustment will be reflected in the following
    year’s budget. In year funding will not be triggered automatically, therefore where
    schools feel they are likely to trigger the 1% threshold, please contact:

     Floor area for temporary buildings

6.5 Where a school has temporary floor area it will receive additional funding at a fixed
    rate per square metre, this is to acknowledge the additional costs associated with
    cleaning, building maintenance, caretaking and energy costs of a temporary building.
    In order for additional in year funding to be triggered the school must meet the same

Section 7 - Specific factors
     Curriculum Protection

7.1 This funding is targeted at small schools as it is recognised that there are core fixed
    costs that are common to all primary schools regardless of size. Schools with rolls
    (Year groups R to 6) of less than 211 pupils as at the January census will trigger
    protection on a sliding scale. Curriculum protection funding is calculated as follows:

      a) Up to and including 50 pupils - a fixed lump sum
      b) For each pupil on roll between 51 and a 100, an amount per pupil will be
         deducted from the lump sum
      c) For each pupil on roll between 101 and 210, an additional amount per pupil will
         be deducted from the lump sum


     Workforce reform - junior aged pupils

7.2 An allocation is given to assist primary aged pupils in year groups 3 to 6 with low
    AEN funding who have little flexibility within their budget to redirect resources to meet
    the minimum requirements for teacher non-contact time. The funding is allocated at
    a flat rate per pupil for junior aged pupils with no AEN. The number of non AEN
    pupils eligible for funding is calculated by taking the total number of pupils in year
    groups 3 to 6 and subtracting the number of prior attainment and Mosaic pupils in the
    school.

     Lump sum

7.3 All primary and secondary schools receive a lump sum. This funding represents the
    amount of funding that has previously been delegated to schools, and subsequently
    uplifted annually for inflation, for support services that were provided centrally.
    Examples of this are Personnel and Finance.

     London Fringe

7.4 Schools within designated London fringe areas receive funding to reflect the
    additional costs of employing staff. Schools in the Sevenoaks and Dartford districts
    receive London fringe funding. Funding is allocated at a flat rate per weighted pupil.
    The number of weighted pupils is determined by the number of recorded pupils on
    the January 2010 census multiplied by the key stage AWPU weighting.

     Split Site Funding

7.5 Schools organised on more than one main site separated by at least 1/2 a mile by
    the shortest available walking route or a busy main road receive additional funding
    for split sites. Schools where a bridge or tunnel is available to overcome the
    problems of a busy main road do not qualify. Allocations are calculated on the total
    number of registered pupils in January 2010.
                                                                          Back to contents page

      Detached playing fields

7.6 Schools with less than the minimum requirement for playing fields under the School
    Premises Regulations 1981 receive an additional allocation for transport. Allocations
    are only made where the nearest suitable facilities are more than one mile away for
    primary schools and 1.25 miles away for secondary schools, by the shortest available
    walking route. Where at least half the minimum requirement is available on site or
    within the qualifying distance, the allocation is reduced by 50%. Allocations are
    calculated on the number of registered pupils aged 7 to 15 at the January 2010
    census.

      Off-site PE facilities

7.7 Small primary schools with less than 280 registered pupils in January 2010 and
    without suitable indoor PE facilities (excluding swimming pools) receive an additional
    allocation for transport. Allocations are only made where the nearest suitable
    facilities are more than one mile away by the shortest available walking route and are
    calculated on the number of registered pupils aged 7 and over in January 2010.

      Reduction for non AWPU funding included in the LSC funding.

7.8    For secondary schools that receive sixth form funding from the YPLA an element for
      schools non AWPU costs are included. The schools formula also funds these non
      AWPU costs and therefore schools are double funded. Funding is recouped from the
      individual schools in proportion to the size of their YPLA allocation for the financial
      year.

      SEN Unit Funding

7.9 SEN unit funding comprises of four separate elements:

      i)     Place funding

      The place led funding is based on an amount per place depending on the need type
      of the unit. The number of places funded is determined annually by Colin Feltham,
      Head of SEN. For queries in respect of the number of places allocated, please
      contact one of the following SEN Finance and Information Officers:

     ii)    Audit profile


     Within the need type there are differing levels of severity, the funding rate for each
     pupil is determined by the level of need.

     iii)   Lump sum

     All units receive a lump sum in respect of the core running costs unit.

     iv)    London Fringe

     Schools within designated London fringe areas (see paragraph 7.4 for details of
     partnerships included) receive additional funding to reflect the additional costs of
     employing staff. Funding is allocated according to the number of unit places
     purchased in January 2010.

     Lead School Funding

7.10 The following partnerships Ashford One, Ashford Rural, Dartford East, Dartford
     West, Gravesham, Shepway One, Shepway Rural and Swanley and District are all
     part of the Units Review pilot that is taking place from April 2009 to March 2011. An
     evaluation of the pilot will take place during the autumn of 2010.

     A lead school will receive the greater of:

     a) Funding based on the current formula for units (see paragraph 6.8 above) plus
        £15,000
     b) 50% of the new formula (see below for details) + 50% of the current formula for a
        unit
     c) £50,000.

     The new formula consists of three elements a lump sum, an amount per pupil based
     on the population of the partnership and an amount per pupil based on the need
     type of the Lead School and the population of the partnership. For VI and HI Lead
     Schools, funding for the need type is allocated on an amount per pupil and not an
     amount per pupil population in the partnership.

     Early Years (EY)

7.11 Kent is not part of the DCSF Pathfinder process but impletmented the new
     arrangements in April 2010 for private, independent and voluntary providers a year
     ahead of the revised DCSF deadline.
     For maintained nursery units and Northfleet Nursery School, their early years
     budgets are protected at the level they would have been under the former system.
     The calculation of this protected level of funding is as follows:
      a) The January 2010 count of pre-R part time pupils
      b) The full year AWPU rate for these pupils, including all the other various formula
         elements that are based on the head count (e.g. grounds allowance)
      c) The additional SEN/AEN elements that will transfer to the new EY deprivation
         supplement in future. This is expressed as an average amount per EY pupil
      d) The 2010-11 EY budget is then calculated as follows:
                        aX(b+c)=d


     The result at (d) above represents the part of the formula that was previously
     included as an integral part of the rest of the total school funding calculation. We
     merely show it separately for 2010-11 to assist in comparing it to the new
     arrangements that will follow in 2011-12. There has been no change to the
     underlying basis on which it has been calculated.

     Memorandum budget
     In addition maintained providers receive a memorandum statement showing what
     their budget would look like under the new arrangements without any protection. In
     effect this is a preview of the 2011-12 system.

     The memorandum statement includes:-
      e) An estimate of the total hours of provision that will be claimable for the period
         April 2010-March 2011. This is initially based on the actual provision made in the
         past year (April 2009 - March 2010) using the three pupil counts for those
         periods, and assuming all pupils attend for 12.5 hours per week.
      f) The hourly rate payable under the new formula, including the supplements for
         qualifications and deprivation
      g) Total estimated payments, ie (e) multiplied by (f)

     For guidance in respect of nursery rising roll refer to paragraph 9.2 below.

     Insurance

7.12 All primary schools receive an allocation for the costs incurred to insure their school
     buildings, contents and injury to staff and pupils (liability insurance). This funding is
     based on the full cost of insurance provided through the Kent Insurance Scheme
     (known as the “Safe Hands” scheme). The scheme operates on a five year cycle,
     where by schools are given the opportunity to opt in or opt out of the scheme at the
     beginning of the period. For those schools opting out of the scheme, insurance will
     be funded up to the equivalent level of the premiums of the Kent Insurance Scheme.
     The premium for buildings insurance is based on the valuation of the property, and
     contents is funded at a rate of 15% of the buildings premium. Liability insurance is
     funded at £6.97 per pupil, based on the school’s pupil numbers as at the January
     census. Where a school has opted into the Kent Insurance Scheme, the insurance
     funding will be recouped via its monthly advance. Buildings and contents premium
     will be charged to E23 (CFR expenditure code for other insurance premiums) and
     liability insurance will be split 50% E11 (CFR code staff related insurance) and 50%
     E23.

     Delegated Free School Meals

7.13 For those primary schools that provide meals “in house” and are not part of the Kent
     Schools catering contract, funding is allocated on the following basis. The number of
     pupils eligible for free school meals as at the January census are funded at an
     amount per pupil multiplied by the average number of meal days an average FSM
     pupil takes during the school year. The maximum number of meal days in a school
     year (190) is multiplied by the percentage of average meals a FSM pupil takes during
     the school year (90%), to give the number of meal days funded of 171. Funding is
     also allocated on an amount per square metre towards the revenue maintenance
     costs of kitchen equipment and an amount per pupil towards the administration of
     services previously provided by client services and now the responsibility of the
     school. For queries in respect of catering services please contact:

     Private Finance Initiative (PFI)

7.14 There are two distant areas where PFI costs are recouped from schools. The first
     known as the KCC contribution is the additional funding provided to PFI schools to
     cover the additional revenue costs of the PFI contract. The element of funding will be
     recorded under the Specific Factors Section on the schools budget template and will
     be recouped in full by the LA through the schools advances system.

7.15 The second recoupment element known as the schools contribution is the equivalent
     funding provided to non PFI schools through the delegated formula budget for
     premises costs, ground costs, building maintenance and insurance. For details in

     Formula review transitional protection

7.16 An additional factor has been included in the schools formula to aid those schools
     that did not benefit from the 2007-08 formula review. The 2010-11 financial year is
     the final year of this factor.

Section 8 - Minimum Funding Guarantee (MFG)
8.1 The minimum funding guarantee was introduced by the DfE (formerly the DCSF) in
    order to ensure that schools had stability in their funding so that they could plan for
    the future with greater certainty.

     The level of funding a school will receive will be the greater of a) the delegated
     funding formula and b) the minimum funding guarantee (MFG). In the current
     Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) period (2008-09 to 2010-11) schools will be
     protected on the average amount of funding it receives per pupil from the previous
     year plus a 2.1% uplift (excluding some exempt items). The calculation includes all
     pupils in year groups R to Yr 11.

     The detailed calculation works as follows:
     (i) Previous years school budget, this is generally referred to as the schools
           baseline.
     (ii) Any exempt items are deducted from the baseline. The purpose of the MFG is
           to protect a school on the variable cost in relation to the number of pupils in the
           school. One way to describe an exempt item is to say that it is a fixed cost that
           does not have a direct relationship with the number of pupils in the school. The
           following are currently classified as exempt items; Unit/Lead School funding,
           Very Severe and Complex Needs funding (VSCN), Rates, Rentals, delegation
           of free school meals in the year of change, curriculum protection for schools
           receiving reorganisation funding, PFI, reorganisation funding, Early years
           funding and AEN challenging circumstances.
     (iii) The baseline less exempt items is then uplifted by the 2.1% and divided by the
           number of pupils from the previous year; this amount is known as the MFG rate
           per pupil.
     (iv) Any changes in pupil numbers from the previous year is funded at the MFG rate
           per pupil less an amount for fixed costs. School’s costs can be broken down
           into variable and fixed costs, for example the cost of a headteacher is a fixed
           cost and generally will not have a variable relationship with the number of
           classes in the school, whereas the number of pupils will have a direct
           relationship with the number of classes/classroom teachers in the school.
           Therefore in general a change in pupil numbers whether it is an increase or a
           decrease will not have a direct impact on the fixed costs of the school. For
           primary schools with more than 75 pupils an increase in pupil numbers will be
           funded at 80% of the pupils MFG and a fall in pupil numbers will be reduced by
           80% of the pupils MFG per pupil. For those schools with less than 75 pupils the
           % applied for fixed costs to the MFG per pupil will be determined by the schools
           individual overall % of pupil led funding as a share of its budget. For secondary
           school’s an increase in pupil numbers will be funded at 87.5% of the pupils
           MFG and a fall in pupil numbers will be reduced by 87.5% of the pupils MFG
           per pupil.

     The new baseline plus exempt items for the current year is then compared to the
     funding generated using the delegated funding formula. A school will receive the
     greater of the MFG or the formula. If the MFG is greater than the formula, the
     difference between the two is known as the level of MFG protection.

Section 9 - Rising Roll and Nursery Rising Roll Funding
     Rising Roll

9.1 Schools may be entitled to rising roll funding if they have an increase in pupil
    numbers. Rising roll funding includes year groups R to 11, separate arrangements
    are in place for pre year R pupils who will be funded through the Nursery rising roll
    (see paragraph 9.2 below). Any increase in pupil numbers between the January and
    October pupil census which is greater than 1% of the January roll will trigger funding.
    Eligible schools will receive funding on the increase in pupil numbers less 1% of the
    total roll as at the January census.

     For primary schools with more than 75 pupils the number of eligible pupils will be
     multiplied by 80% of the school’s pupil MFG (see paragraph 8.1 for explanation).

     For primary schools with less than 75 pupils, the number of eligible pupils will be
     multiplied by the % proportion of pupil led funding times the schools pupil MFG.

     For secondary schools the number of eligible pupils will be multiplied by 87.5 % of
     the school’s pupil MFG (see paragraph 8.1 for explanation).

     The total funding will then be pro-rata for the period September to March (7/12ths). It
     is important to note that for schools on the MFG, funding will only be generated once
     the level of the MFG has been exceeded. A rising roll calculator has been included
     in your school’s 3 year planner.

     Nursery Rising Roll

9.2 Nursery rising roll funding is triggered for pre year R pupils where pupil numbers at
    the census count dates in May 2010, October 2010 and January 2011 are
    individually greater than the January 2010 census pupil numbers. Funding is
    generated for any increase greater than 5% of the January roll and will be payable at
    80% of the average amount funded per pre year R pupil. Funding will be allocated on
    the following pro-rata amounts, 12/12ths May, 7/12ths October and 3/12ths January and
    the funding is not part of the MFG. A nursery rising calculator has been included in
    your school’s 3 year planner.

Section 10 - Schools’ Funding Forum
10.1 The Schools’ Funding Forum is made up of representatives from different types of
     schools and provides strategic advice to the Local Authority and informs policy on the
     overall Schools’ Budget and the calculation of individual schools budgets by formula.
     The Forum is committed to an on-going review of funding arrangements and to
     disseminating practical guidance to schools to aid budget planning.

     The Schools’ Funding Forum in general is an advisory body and the final say in
     respect of funding policy is made by elected Members. However in Kent there is a
     strong relationship between schools, LA officers and elected Members. The Schools’
     Funding Forum also has a number of sub- groups that have specific responsibilities
     and carry out detailed work on behalf of the Forum. The sub-groups are Central
     Costs and Specific Grant Groups (CC&SGG), Delegated Formula Funding Group

     Contingency claims

10.2 The Delegated Formula Funding Group (DFFG) is a sub group of the Schools’
     Funding Forum and has a representative membership of Headteachers, Governors
     and School Business Managers/Bursars. One of the responsibilities of the group is to
     consider contingency funding applications from schools. A school may submit an
     application for contingency when exceptional circumstances apply to their school and
     have been caused by events that were outside of their control. For initial guidance
     and criteria please contact:

Section 11 - Federation Funding
11.1 Schools in a Hard Federation (which is defined as having gone through a statutory
     proposal to federate the schools and such arrangements result in a single governing
     body for all the schools in the Federation) maybe entitled to one off funding as a
     contribution to initial set up costs.

     Eligibility and level of funding will be determined by which one of the following
     categories the Hard Federation falls into
     1     Schools in category
            Definition – as defined by Ofsted
            Formula - £50k lump sum plus £20 per pupil based on the total number of
                pupils in the new federation.

     2    Schools causing concern
           Definition – as defined by ASK (Advisory Service Kent).
           Formula - £50k lump sum plus £20 per pupil based on the total number of
             pupils in the new federation.

     3    Supported other
           Definition – will improve school effectiveness and is supported by the Local
            Authority. The Director of Learning will determine this after consultation with
            the relevant Area Education Officer and SMT.
           Formula - £10k lump sum plus £20 per pupil based on the total number of
            pupils in the new federation.

     4    Not supported
           Definition – federations not supported by the Local Authority.
           Formula – no funding

     Future Expansion
     If the federation expands in the future, they will receive a further £10k lump sum plus
     £20 per pupil. The “per pupil” funding only applies to the new school joining the
     federation.

     Penalty
     Any federation that dissolves within five years will have to reimburse the overall
     schools’ budget with the sum given to the federation (pro rata on spend between the
     schools in the federation). If this cannot be agreed then the method used would be
     based on a pro-rata amount relating to each school’s roll at the time of dissolution.

11.2 For a federation to receive funding as outlined in paragraph 11.1 above it must firstly
     submit a detailed plan outlining the areas of expenditure, amounts and period it will
     cover. From 2010-11 federation funding will not be classed as an exempt item for the
     purpose of the Balance Control Mechanism (BCM). Federations will have two years
     from the date of federating to claim their allowance; payments to schools will be
     made against the expenditure headings in the federation plan and will be made in the
     financial year when the costs are incurred. For guidance submission of plans and
     claiming federation funding, please contact: Ian Hamilton on 01622 694973, e-mail
