Section 251 (Section 52)
Local authorities (LAs) are required under section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 to prepare and submit annually to the Secretary of State separate budget and outturn statements about their planned and actual expenditure for their education and children’s social care functions.
Section 251 replaces Section 52 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 in England. Section 52 still applies in Wales.
The statements are the primary means of informing schools and the public in general about LA funding and expenditure plans. The statements are intended to give detailed information on each LA's planned expenditure on their education and children’s social care functions in a form which allows benchmarking, by schools forums and authorities.
