The Victorian Government is investing funding of $566 million over four years and introducing new allocation criteria to provide better-targeted funding to high-needs students and ensure additional resources and expertise are available.
Find your school’s funding
For the first time, you can see the amount of funding your school is receiving from the Victorian Government as part of its commitment to make Victoria the Education State.
More funding for socially disadvantaged students
New allocation criteria for equity funding will more effectively target social disadvantage. The new approach incorporates both individual factors of disadvantage and the concentration of disadvantage in the school.
Catch Up funding for students falling behind
This new Education State funding will target students entering secondary schools who have not met national NAPLAN minimum standards for reading in Year 5. The funding will allow schools to invest in interventions to help students catch up to their peers.
How schools are funded
The Student Resource Package (SRP) is the main source of funds for government schools. Find out what makes up the school budget.
Inclusive Schools Fund
This $20 million, four-year fund will provide Victorian government schools with money for innovative projects that promote inclusive school environments and support the education needs of children with a disability.
