The DfE has published a consultation on proposals aimed at improving the financial transparency and accountability of maintained schools and local authorities.

The consultation provides a section for identifying any increase in costs likely to be experienced by either local authorities or the school if these proposals were introduced.

The DfE welcomes your views on the new measures that we are proposing to implement across the local authority maintained schools sector.
