April 2016 - High needs funding reform

In April 2016 the National Governors' Association (NGA) submitted evidence to the high needs funding reform consultation.

Questions included:

  • Do you agree with our proposed principles for the funding system?
  • Do you agree that the majority of high needs funding should be distributed to local authorities rather than directly to schools and other institutions?
  • Do you agree that the high needs formula should be based on proxy measures of need, not the assessed needs of children and young people?
  • Do you agree with the basic factors proposed for the formula?
