Section 251 Budget Statements

Councils are required to prepare, submit and publish annual budget and outturn statements about their planned and actual spending to the Secretary of State. The statements cover spending for education and children’s social care functions as required under section 251.

They are the primary means of informing schools and the public about council funding and spending plans and provide detailed information in a form that allows benchmarking by schools forums and councils.
