Children's services funding statements

Middlesbrough Council is required, under section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009, to prepare an annual budget statement before the beginning of each financial year, and an outturn statement at the end of the financial year.

The financial year period is 1 April to 31 March.

Middlesbrough Council must make a copy of the whole statement available on the website so it's accessible to the public. It's important that schools and others can compare funding to inform debate about budget levels, and issues like the balance of funding between primary and secondary schools.

The statements are intended to:

  • provide schools, parents and others with an interest in education with details about schools and Local Education Authority (LEA) funding and expenditure;
  • provide data for the Departmental Annual Report (DAR);
  • inform policy making;
  • inform the Treasury for monitoring purposes;
  • inform Parliament in its role of monitoring the Department's accountability for public funds. 

You can view the annual statements below.
