Funding and Costs
The Federation does not pool funding therefore as a school in the Ryedale Federation, you would receive your full funding allocation . A small percentage of the funding, between 4-5%, will be top sliced by the Federation to pay for the central services provided for the school.
However, we recognise that as more schools join our Federation, we will need to grow capacity within the central team to enable us to provide a full support service to all schools. This will require an interim period to ensure a smooth transition and to ensure the services to be provided are tuned to the needs of partner schools. The top slice will be adjusted to reflect this.
Our aim as a Federation is to maximise efficient use of resources to enhance provision for students. We believe we can achieve this through shared services, resources and procurement – our track record as a federation supports this. We know that the current financial climate is challenging for all schools but we are confident that our Federation approach will improve the financial sustainability of all our schools.
