An update on the Teachers Pay Grant (TPG) for September 2018 to March 2019.

Our e-bulletin on the 12 October provided an update on the 2018 School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document and included details of the grant funding rates, to access this document view the 12 October news item.

The content of this communication is to provide details of the grant calculation and payment profile.

Mainstream Schools

The data used to calculate each school’s allocation is taken from the following sources:

  • 2 to 4-year olds - headcount from the January 2018 census
  • 5 to 16-year olds - headcount from the October 2017 census
  • 16 to 19-year olds - number of pupils used to calculate the 2018-2019 academic year funding allocations.

The Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) have noted that there has been some double-counting affecting children in reception classes.

Note: Where this is the case no adjustment will be made to your grant payment published by the ESFA.
