Consultation regarding the application of deprivation to the Early Years Single Funding Formula - Department for Education (DfE) Schools Funding Reform
From April 2013, Hampshire County Council (HCC) has to implement changes to the way it funds schools and early years education providers. The new approach means that HCC’s schools funding formula will need to change and this will have a significant impact on all schools. The DfE is not proposing major changes to the main elements of the Early Years Single Funding Formula (EYSFF). However, they now require the mandatory deprivation supplement in the EYSFF to be based on child-level definitions of eligibility, rather than operating a supplement based on the characteristics at setting level. For Hampshire, this will mean moving from the current ‘Index of Multiple Deprivation’ (IMD) to the 'Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index’ (IDACI). This change will mean that deprivation rates will not be fixed for each setting but based on the individual postcodes of the children who attend the setting.
This consultation has been developed to provide various options as to how this new way of calculating deprivation can be applied and to help us gain the views from as many Hampshire approved early years education providers as we can. A Survey Monkey questionnaire has also been set up which outlines the options available and includes a short cost survey to assist Services for Young Children with future benchmarking.

Consultation Opens : 3rd September
Consultation Closes : 28th September

The Partnership Advisory Group have helped us in shaping the document.
