How should we fund England’s schools?

The Whitehouse Consultancy is partnering with The Education Policy Institute to host a timely discussion on the Government’s proposed National Funding Formula (NFF) for schools on Thursday 13 July.

The pressure to reform the school funding system stems not only from the current inconsistency of the funding allocated to each local authority, but also, increasingly, from the growing number of academies. Academies are still primarily funded on what they would receive as a local authority school.

To discuss these issues we have a strong panel chaired by Rt Hon. David Laws – Executive Chairman, Education Policy Institute, including:

Malcolm Trobe CBE – Deputy General Secretary, ASCL
Michelle Doyle Wildman – Acting Chief Executive, PTA
Mark Emmerson – Chief Executive, City of London Academies Trust
Charlotte Santry – Deputy News Editor, TES
