Cornwall is set to get more money for schools

In a bit of good news, Cornwall, along with some other local authorities, is set to receive a boost in pupil funding. This follows on from a uplift of funding to the tune of £4.9m in the 2015/2016 financial year. This uplift was due to a funding rate harmonisation that is part of the national fair funding formula process.

This funding was initially on a one year only basis, but with a ‘commitment’ from the then government to fund this permanently by adding it into the baseline funding for the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG).

I am very pleased to say this additional funding has now been confirmed so the additional £4.9 million is here to stay and will be incorporated into Cornwall’s grant funding for 2016/2017 and beyond.

A positive bit of news, but Cornwall still remains one of the worse funding areas for schools.
