Maintained nursery schools (MNSs) make a valuable contribution to improving the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children. Our supplementary funding of approximately £60 million a year enables local authorities to protect MNS funding until 2019/20. Initial allocations to local authorities in respect of the MNS supplementary funding for the financial year 2018 to 2019 are available in the 2018 to 2019 dedicated schools grant allocations table on GOV.UK at:

Final allocations for 2018 to 2019 will be made in the summer of 2019. Allocations for 2019-20 will be made in due course.
