Education Services Grant (replaces LACSEG)

The Education Services Grant will be allocated on a simple per-pupil basis. In order to keep the new system as transparent and straight forward as possible, neither an area cost adjustment nor a deprivation weighting will be applied.

Final ESG allocations for academies will be issued by 31 March 2013 along with confirmation of the academy’s 2013/14 General Annual Grant.

  • Academies will receive £150 per pupil in 2013/14 and £140 per pupil in 2014/15.
  • For  special academies and alternative provision academies, multipliers of 4.25 and 3.75 will be applied respectively.
  • For special academies, a multiplier of 4.25 will be applied to the rate for academies. Special academies will receive £637.50 per pupil in 2013/14 and £595 per pupil in 2014/15. ESG allocations will be calculated using 2013-14 planned places.
  • For Alternative Provision academies a multiplier of 3.75 will be applied to the rate. AP academies will receive £562.50 per pupil in 2013/14 and £525 per pupil in 2014/15. ESG allocations will be calculated using 2013-14 planned places.
  • In moving to a new system from 2013/14, we will protect academies from significant year-on-year funding reductions for education services.
  • Academies  opening during the 2013/14 academic year will also be eligible for   protection.
  • Final grant allocations for academies will      be issued by 31 March 2013 along with confirmation of the academy’s      2013/14 General Annual Grant.
  • No academy  will see more than a 10% reduction from the published 2012/13 LA Block   LACSEG rate for their local authority.
  • For      those academies whose current per-pupil LA Block LACSEG allocations are  higher than the published 2012/13 rates, we will ensure that the reduction      in their per-pupil funding is no greater than 20% in 2013/14.
