To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how much funding has been made available to the London Borough of Southwark for early years provision for three and four-year olds in each of the last seven years; and how much funding is being made available to the London Borough of Southwark for early years provision for three and four-year olds under her Department's new early years national funding formula in each of the next three years.
18 July 2017
The early years funding allocation for three and four year olds for Southwark local authority can be found here for the following financial years:
2016-17 (provisional allocation): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2016-to-2017
2017-18 – First year under Early Years National Funding Formula (initial allocation): https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/dedicated-schools-grant-dsg-2017-to-2018
Prior to 2013-14, early years’ local authority funding allocations were not separately identified within the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). Instead, they were part of the total DSG allocated to each local authority. Early years allocations prior to 2013-14 are not therefore available.
Funding allocations for 2018-19 and 2019-20 will be announced in due course.
