Education services grant 2015 to 2016

The Education Services Grant (ESG) was introduced in to replace the Local
Authority Central Spend Equivalent Grant (LACSEG), which was paid to academies to
cover the cost of the services that local authorities provide centrally to maintained
schools but that academies must secure independently. As LACSEG allocations were
based on the spending decisions of local authorities the system created a large variation
in allocations to academies across the country and uncertainty about allocations from
one year to the next.
