Notes from the Meeting:
In 2018/19 the ‘soft formula’ will be used. This means that Barnsley council schools will not face the full impact of the funding formula and that the council will use their own formula to distribute money. The formula that the council are using is based upon the governments.
In 2019/20 the ‘hard formula’ will be introduced and all schools will get the exact money allocated by the government.
There is some transitional protection.
