NFER response to NAO’s School Funding in England report

Statement

Friday 2 July 2021

Responding to the NAO’s School Funding in England report, Jenna Julius, senior economist at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), said:

“We welcome the NAO’s recommendation that the Department should re-evaluate its current approach to ‘levelling-up’ National Funding Formula (NFF) funding.

“We recommend the Government adopts a more progressive approach to NFF funding during this unprecedented time to assist the most deprived schools in providing the extra support needed to help their pupils recover missed curriculum learning.”
