Scheme for financing schools
The Telford & Wrekin scheme for financing schools describes the financial relationship between the Council and maintained schools within the area.
The scheme is based upon government guidance but also incorporates local policies, the content of which is discussed and agreed with the local Schools Forum. It is updated each year and the current 2015 Scheme applies to the 2015/16 financial year.
