Student Resource Package — Core Student Learning Allocation Funding (Student-Based Funding)

Size Adjustment Supplementation (Reference 6)

The Size Adjustment Supplementation applies to all specialist schools where the number of school aged enrolments is less than the enrolment threshold.

Eligibility

The following school campus types receive the Size Adjustment Supplementation funding at a school level:

  • Day special
  • Special developmental
  • Disability
  • Special
  • Furlong Park School For Deaf Children.

Funding is calculated for each of the 4 school terms and allocated through credit and cash funding.

Calculation

Where total enrolments at the school are less than 45 (enrolment threshold): Size Adjustment Supplementation = [45(enrolment threshold) − Core Index Enrolment] × Rate

Example: A school with 35 enrolments would calculate their Size Adjustment Supplementation funding as:
[45(enrolment threshold) − Core Index enrolment (35)] × Rate

The maximum amount funded is limited to cap listed below.

Rates 2023

  • Per student rate: $6,059
  • Enrolment threshold: 45
  • Maximum funded: $137,768
