Decision:

Schools forum approved the allocation of funding to those schools listed in Appendix A from Contingency De-delegated Budget.

Minutes:

The report was presented by the Children’s Services Finance Manager who explained that the report was based on March 2017 figures and that academies did not fall within the scope for assistance from Royal Borough of Greenwich. The aim was to use the Apprenticeship Levy as flexibly as possible to ensure that a school’s needs were met. Schools should endeavour to maximise the use of apprenticeship programmes where possible to ensure that they get the maximum benefit possible to offset some of the costs that they were incurring. Children’s Services offered various support and courses for schools to consider to maximise this agenda.

 

The Maintained school members voted and agreed unanimously to the allocation of funding to the schools listed in Appendix A from Contingency De-delegated Budget.

 

Resolved:

 

Schools Forum approved the allocation of funding to those schools listed in Appendix A from Contingency De-delegated Budget.
