<p>Maintained nursery schools (MNS) make an important contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. In recognition of the costs that MNS experience over and above other providers, we are providing supplementary funding – additional to funding received under the Early Years National Funding Formula (EYNFF) – of around £60 million a year to enable local authorities to protect MNS pre-EYNFF funding levels until 2019-20.</p><p>There is one MNS in Kingston-upon-Hull, McMillan Nursery School. The Department for Education allocated the City of Kingston-upon-Hull £187,575.60 in MNS supplementary funding for the 2017-18 financial year.</p><p>It is for individual local authorities to make decisions on the allocation of funding, including supplementary funding, to their MNS. Local authorities are required to report their planned spending in their section 251 returns, which are published via the early years funding proforma here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-benchmarking-tool" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-benchmarking-tool</a>.</p><p>Our supplementary funding provides MNS with stability whilst we develop a long-term solution for them. An important part of this will be understanding the value for money that they offer, and new research will report on this later in the year.</p><p>We continue to meet with a wide variety of early years and MNS sector representatives on a wide variety of topics, including MNS funding.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
