Education budget statement

Section 251 budget statement (formerly Section 52 budget statement)

Children’s Services must by law prepare a budget statement before the beginning of each financial year for that year.

The Statement takes the form of a series of tables showing resources available to maintained schools, academies and free schools. It includes funds given direct to schools and those held centrally for schools.

Section 251 Budget 2020/21 – Due to COVID-19 the Department for Education advised the Council not to produce this.
