Budget statements are prepared before the start of each financial year and they are intended to provide a clear picture of the authority's planned spending as follows:
How our local schools' funding formula is working to produce budget shares for each maintained school in our area and the amount allocated to each school;
The planned central spending within the Schools Budget for school services;
The planned spending on the LEA Budget outside the Schools Budget and on other children's social care.
Financial statements from 2004-05 onwards are available via the links to the left.
Guidance on the format and content of the tables is available in the .pdf document at the bottom of this page.
