Schools and Early Years Finance (England) Regulations 2017

02 February 2017

These regulations were published at the end of last week and explain how local authorities set their education budgets for 2017/18. 

The regulations took effect from this month (February) and will apply for the 2017/18 funding year. There are also changes to the types of expenditure that can be covered by the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) following the removal of the Education Services Grant (ESG) in September 2017. See online to read the changes.

For more detail on central services expenditure (previously ESG) in 2017/18, have a look at the Schools Revenue Funding 2017 to 2018 Operational Guide.
