Annual Review of Deciles – 2019

Official notices

Posted: 23 August 2019
Notice reference #: 1H9xE7

The 2019 Decile Review is open and applications close on 23 September.

Each year, schools can apply for a decile review if they believe there has been a significant change in the school's roll profile since the original assessment was made.

2018 Census data will not be available in time to recalculate deciles for 2020 so the Ministry will continue to carry out decile reviews based on the 2013 Census data.

To apply for a decile review, schools need to supply information as outlined in the application pack. Application packs and information about how to apply are available on the Education Counts website.

Results will be available before the end of the 2019 school year. Where reviews are successful and the decile will be lowered, the increased funding will apply from the beginning of the 2020 school year.

Note: Indicative funding notices for the 2020 year (released in September 2019) will be calculated using a school’s current decile.
