DfE School and academy funding group (SAFG)

Terms of reference

The School and Academy Funding (SAF) Group and its corresponding sub-groups (Early Years and Efficiency) exist to advise the Department on matters relating to all aspects of school funding, in the context of the wider policy objectives for schools.  In particular, it is intended:

  1. to provide a forum for identifying, discussing and, as far as possible, resolving issues relating to the school funding system, taking account of the wider Children’s Services funding system insofar as that impacts on schools
  2. to consider proposals for developing the school funding system; and to provide a feedback channel to DfE
  3. to secure a partnership approach in creating a fairer school funding system

The group usually meets once a month.
