Section 251 budget statements

Section 251 budget statements are intended to provide a clear picture of the local authority’s spending on education. These documents were previously known as Section 52.​

Local education authorities are required, under Section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009, to prepare and publish both budget and outturn statements each year. The statements are intended to provide a clear picture of an authority’s spending on education. The format of each statement is prescribed by the Department for Education and Skills.

The budget statement provides details on planned spending for the Education Service as a whole and on an individual school basis.
