The overall means of calculating the new NFF remains largely unchanged from the model described in the guide we produced earlier in the year. Today's consultation describes the pace of change and defines the transition and ranges of variance schools can expect.

On top of this the National Audit Office is warning that English state schools will have to find £3bn in savings by 2019-20.

The DfE's models shows some clear winners and losers based on their own modelling, with some London authority regions doing worst:
