To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what assessment she has made of the potential benefits of a national funding formula for early years education.
9 July 2015
The government understands the importance of funding that secures the effective and efficient delivery of early years education. We are aware that there are historical inconsistencies and inefficiencies with the current funding system for the three- and four-year entitlement. The government is committed to early education funding which is simple, transparent and maximises funding reaching the front line. Our long term objective is to make funding truly fair.
