You can also view DataShare where you can view detailed information and figures about our budget.

The purpose of our medium term financial strategy is to:

  • support our corporate planning process
  • indicate the resource issues and principles

It sets out the current and projected financial forecasts over a 3 year planning timeline and is aimed at supporting the development of our budget over this period. It also provides the framework to enable the effective delivery of our key plans and strategies.

We are required to publish our planned and actual spending on education and children’s social care under Section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. We are required to publish schemes for financing schools, setting out the financial relationship between us and the schools we maintain.

We record our spending for:

  • total dedicated schools grant (DSG)
  • early years
  • high needs
  • post-16
  • other non-statutory spending

We must also provide details of our children and young people’s services budget.

The section 251 budget data statements are the primary means of informing schools and the public in general about our funding and expenditure plans on education and children’s social care functions in a form that allows benchmarking.
