S251 education budget statements

Section 251 budget statements show the planned spending for education for each financial year, including how much we:

  • intend to spend on the local authority budget outside the schools budget
  • propose to retain centrally within the schools budget for school services.

These statements inform schools and the public about our funding and expenditure plans. They provide detailed information in a form that allows benchmarking by schools forums and authorities.
