Schools Budget 2020/21

In accordance with the Government's school funding Regulations and Guidance, the Authority is required to submit a final Schools Block budget pro-forma for 2020/21 to the Education and Skills Funding Agency by 21 January 2020. This report seeks the authorisation of the Cabinet to submit the Schools Block budget pro-forma and requests approval for the Early Years, High Needs and Central Schools Services Block budgets for 2020/21.


This is deemed to be a Key Decision and the provisions of Standing Order C19 have been complied with.


This decision should be implemented immediately for the purposes of Standing Order C29 as any delay could adversely affect the execution of the county council's responsibilities.
