Consultation on School Funding Arrangements for the 2021-22 Financial Year

This 'Fair Funding' consultation is to ask you what you think about the North Somerset Strategic Schools Forum plans for how the 'minor national funding arrangements' will be introduced in North Somerset. It will mainly be of interest to school heads, heads of governors and bursars at schools, though anyone is welcome to take part. Taking part does require you to read and understand the consultation document. If you are answering on behalf of an organisation (e.g. a school) we require a single official response from your organisation. We will publish a list of which organisations have taken part but will not attribute any responses to any named organisations. So, once you have read that document, please let us know your views about the recommendations and how they can be implemented using this online questionnaire, before 6pm on 7 January 2020. The questionnaire is designed to be accessible to all. If you need it in another format, contact Emma Whitehead
