LEICESTERSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL
2010/11 SECTION 251 EDUCATION BUDGET STATEMENTS
Please find attached the 2010/11 Budget Statements. These tables show all planned expenditure on Children and Young People's Services by Leicestershire Local Authority (LA) for the 2010/11 financial year. The tables are broken down as follows:
School Budget Summary Table (SBS Table) provides an account of the main sources of funding available to Leicestershire LA for schools, giving a comparison with the previous year.
Table 1 of the budget statement gives, at LA-level, an overall picture of Leicestershire LA's planned spending on education and children's social care provision (both school and non-school). 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 LA. The Central Expenditure Limit Annex (CEL) demonstrates that the central spending does not breach the statutory limit.
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 3a and 3b shows how the Leicestershire's formula (described in Table 4) 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 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.
