Maintained schools with sixth-form funding: assurance guidance

Education Funding Agency guide for local authorities on assurance for maintained schools with sixth-form funding.



This document is a guide for local authorities on gaining assurance over the funding provided for local authority-maintained institutions with sixth forms in the 2015 to 2016 academic year.

It is not mandatory for local authorities to follow the guide; local authority chief financial officers must determine whether and how any work should be undertaken to enable them to make their grant returns to the Education Funding Agency (EFA).

The templates at Annex B are also available in Microsoft Word and in open document format.
