Devolved Formula Capital (DFC) provides schools with capital funding to address their own priorities.
DFC funding can be used for:
- building improvements
- facilities improvements, including ICT
- capital repairs and refurbishment
- minor works
If you have doubts about what constitutes capital expenditure for a particular item, you should seek local audit advice.
DFC allocations 2020 to 2021
DFC allocations are published in spring each year. Current allocations are published on our school funding pages.
Details of how DFC was calculated can be found on the condition funding methodology guidance.
The pupil numbers for DFC calculations are taken from previous academic years’ spring school census and the previous funding year return data from Individualised Learner Records (ILR).
