Section 251 budgets

Education spending

 The Section 251 Budget Statements (formerly Section 52) show the planned spending for education in Liverpool for each financial year including:

  • How much we intend to spend on the local authority budget outside the schools budget.
  • How much we propose to retain centrally within the schools budget for school services.

At the end of that financial year the council prepares an outturn statement, which shows how the money was spent.
