Penrith Students Benefit with Needs Based Funding

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that students at Penrith public schools will benefit from the funding certainty delivered in their school budget allocations for next year.

Stuart Ayres said the allocations are part of $10.1 billion in annual Gonski funding being delivered to public schools for 2021. The distribution of funding through the Resource Allocation Model (RAM) ensures that the best possible learning opportunities are provided to directly benefit the 2021 student cohort.

Stuart Ayres said almost $16 million in funding for Penrith, an increase of $530,000 on 2020 delivers support where it is needed the most, to students and schools with the greatest need.

“2021 will be the eighth year that the Resource Allocation Model has delivered funding certainty to schools to enable them to plan so that improvement will touch every classroom, be the work of every teacher and impact every student.”

In addition to a number of needs-based funding items, the funding will be predominately allocated through the seven RAM loadings – the equity loadings (socio-economic, Aboriginal, low-level adjustment for disability, English language proficiency) and the base loadings (location, per capita and professional learning).

“Needs-based funding underpins the great strength of public education - equity of opportunity, and will ensure schools in the Penrith electorate continue to flourish and deliver those opportunities,” said Stuart Ayres.
