OCTOBER CENSUS - IMPORTANT FUNDING INFORMATION
Primary schools should be aware that the postcode of a pupil is likely to be used for part of the deprivation formula factor from 2018/19 onwards, as already applies to secondary schools. This is because the DfE will use IDACI scores, which are obtained from postcodes, to determine “area level” deprivation in the national funding formula (NFF). Surrey is likely to use a combination of current and NFF formula factors to fund schools in 2018/19 although the proportion of pupil level deprivation (FSM eligibility) and area level deprivation for next year’s budget will be consulted on this term.
An invalid postcode on the October 2017 census would be excluded from the area level deprivation calculation and it is therefore important to ensure that a valid postcode is provided for all year R to 11 pupils.
