Consultation description

We are seeking views from the following groups on the proposed technical changes to the regulations that govern school and early years finance:

  • chief finance officers and finance officers at local authorities
  • chairs and clerks of schools forums
  • national organisations

The regulations put in place the new arrangements for local authorities to set school budgets for the financial year 2015 to 2016, as set out in the document ‘Fairer schools funding arrangements for 2015 to 2016’.

There is a draft of the proposed new finance regulations available on this page.

The proposed changes will come into force in January 2015 and will be applied for the financial year 2015 to 2016.
