The local authority is now consulting on revised guidance with all maintained schools from 20th January – 3rd February 2016.

The scheme has be revised based on information from the DfE in December 2015 and will be reviewed annually or when updates are necessary.

The guidance also refers to legislation under School and Early Years Finance (England) Regulations 2014
