STAR funding

STAR funding rates

Operational funding is the money a board of trustees receives from the Government to implement the goals of the school's charter, and to run the school.

The Funding, Staffing and Allowances Handbook Chapter 1, Appendix 3 includes information on operational funding and its components. It includes STAR-related funding information including rates.

STAR funding is provided for a specific purpose, and should be used for that purpose alone.

STAR funding:

  • is a capped resource available to state and integrated schools
  • is roll related, and year 11 to year 13+ students generate the funding pool
  • goes into the school's operational grant, where it is tagged for the purposes of STAR
  • calculations do not cover foreign fee-paying students and adult students.
