Section 52 Budget Statements 2003/04
There are links below to some Excel spreadsheets which are the 2003/04 Budget Statements produced in accordance with Section 52 of the 1998 School Standards and Framework Act. These tables show all planned expenditure on Education by Leicestershire LEA for the 2003/04 financial year. The tables are broken down as follows:
Table 0 provides an account of the main sources of funding available to Leicestershire LEA for schools and of the funding delivered to schools, giving a comparison with the previous year.
Table 1 of the budget statement gives, at LEA-level, an overall picture of Leicestershire LEA's planned spending on educational provision (both school and non-school) in its area. Information provided in this Table enables a comparison to be made between the funding being allocated direct to schools and the amount being spent other than on schools, retained centrally or devolved by the LEA.
Table 2 is linked to Table 3 - it summarises the main formula funding elements and lists the budget share and the per pupil or place share in each school.
Table 3 shows how the Leicestershire's formula (described in Table 5) has been applied to each school to calculate its budget share, including all the relevant factors and lump sums, and the numbers of pupils in each school year used to allocate pupil-led funding.
Table 4 gives a summary of protected and transitional funding for former GM schools.
Table 5 sets out the detail of every formula factor, and each school can relate its own budget share back to the items set out in this part. It includes a complete list of all the factors and values in the formula, and details of the funds allocated across all schools according to each factor.
Table 6 shows the initial standards fund allocations to schools. It is not a statutory statement, but is included to enhance general financial awareness.
