Section 251 Outturn Statements

Local Authorities (LAs) are required under section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 to prepare and submit a statement recording the Council’s education spending after the end of the financial year.

The statement is intended to:

  • provide schools, parents and others with an interest in education with details about schools and RBC’s funding and expenditure;
  • provide data for the Departmental Annual Report (DAR);
  • inform policy making and monitoring of public funds.
  • enable schools and others to compare funding and methodology between different LAs, so as to inform debate about budget and expenditure levels.
