Consultation

School Funding in Wales

Purpose of the consultation

The Children, Young People and Education Committee is conducting an inquiry into:

  • the sufficiency of school funding in Wales; and
  •  the way school budgets are determined and allocated.

The inquiry will focus specifically on:

  • the sufficiency of provision for school budgets, in the context of other public service budgets and available resources;
  • the extent to which the level of provision for school budgets complements or inhibits delivery of the Welsh Government’s policy objectives;
  • the relationship, balance and transparency between various sources of schools’ funding, including core budgets and hypothecated funding;
  • the local government funding formula and the weighting given to education and school budgets specifically within the Local Government Settlement;
  • Welsh Government oversight of how Local Authorities set individual schools’ budgets including, for example, the weighting given to factors such as age profile of pupils, deprivation, language of provision, number of pupils with Additional Learning Needs and pre-compulsory age provision;
  • progress and developments since previous Assembly Committees’ reviews (for example those of the Enterprise and Learning Committee in the Third Assembly); and
  • the availability and use of comparisons between education funding and school budgets in Wales and other UK nations.

A Research Blog (published August 2018) provides further detail on School Funding in Wales.

The Committee would be grateful to receive stakeholders’ evidence by 17:00, Friday 14 December 2018.
