Scheme for Financing Schools

This is City of York Councils Scheme for Financing Schools which follows issue 15 of statutory guidance given by the Secretary of State pursuant to s.48(4) and paragraph 2A(2) of Schedule 14 to the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, School Standards and Framework Act 1998.

Local authorities are required to publish schemes for financing schools, setting out the financial relationship between them and the schools they maintain. The statutory guidance lists the provisions which an Authority’s scheme must, should or may include. Schemes need not follow the format used in the Statutory guidance, except for the text of directed revisions.

In making any changes to their schemes, other than directed revisions, local authorities must consult all maintained schools in their area and receive the approval of the members of their schools forum representing maintained schools. Local authorities must take this guidance into account when they revise their schemes, in consultation with the schools forum.

This scheme goes into effect on 1 April 2024.
