MPs tell DfE to publish funding allocations to academies

The government should publish the exact amount of per-pupil funding in every academy, MPs have said.

A report today also found it was “not possible” to tell if ministers were living up to their commitments.

Boris Johnson promised last January that every school would receive minimum funding of £3,750 per primary pupil and £5,000 per secondary pupil in 2020-21.

But the parliamentary public accounts committee found that although councils were legally required to ensure their maintained schools received the minimum funding levels, academy trusts could pool the funding and did not have to provide each school with the minimum.
