2018 Funding for Non-Government Schools in NSW
In 2018 all non-government schools will receive more per student funding from the State than they did in 2017.
Q1 How will NSW non-government schools be funded in 2018?
In 2018 all non-government schools will receive 2017 per student funding, indexed at 3%.
New schools opening in 2018 will be funded at 20% of their Schooling Resource Standard (SRS).
Q2 When will schools be advised how much funding they will receive in 2018?
The Department has emailed schools and systems to advise them of their 2018 per student funding.
Q3 Why hasnt my school been advised how much State funding it will receive in 2018?
All independent schools and systems in NSW should have received an email from the Department advising them of their 2018 per student funding arrangements. If your school is not part of a system and has not received a 2018 funding notification email, please contact NGSFU@det.nsw.edu.au.
As the Catholic system determines how funding will be distributed between its schools, Catholic systemic schools seeking advice about their specific allocation should contact the Catholic Education Commission NSW.
Q4 How will capital funding be distributed in 2018?
Capital funding is not included in the per student allocations.
The Building Grants Assistance Scheme (BGAS) will continue as planned and ongoing commitments under the former Interest Subsidy Scheme will also be maintained.
Q5 What changes have the Commonwealth made to funding?
Funding for non-government schools in NSW was previously tied to the National Education Reform Agreement (NERA).
The Commonwealth has unilaterally ended the NERA and introduced a new school funding model.
Q6 How will non-government schools in NSW be funded after 2018?
Funding arrangements beyond 2018 are yet to be finalised, as these will be impacted by the new Commonwealth schools funding arrangements.
Q7 Does the NSW Government intend to honour its commitments under the NERA?
The NSW Government remains committed to the NERA, including its contribution of an additional $1.7 billion over the full term for Catholic, independent and public schools in NSW.
