  1. We have updated the severance payments forms and added the guide for academy trusts seeking approval to make non-contractual payments of or over £50,000 so the information is available on one page.

  2. The Education Funding Agency (EFA) has updated the severance payments form for academy trusts wishing to seek approval for non-contractual payments over £50,000. The main changes to the form are the need to include a financial assessment and the requirement to demonstrate that all alternative options have been explored before deciding to make a non-contractual severance payment.
