DSG Monitoring 2020/21 Month 7 (Ian Pearson)
Ian Pearson introduced the report (Agenda Item 16), which aimed to forecast financial position of the services funded by the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG), highlighting any under or over spends, and to highlight the cumulative deficit on the DSG.
Ian Pearson drew attention to the table under section five of the report, which showed the forecast position at the end of October 2020 for each of the funding blocks. Explanations for each of the blocks was provided under sections six to nine of the report.
Section nine of the report looked at the High Needs Block and helpfully listed the main variances against expenditure. Some of the savings achieved were of high value.
RESOLVED that the Schools’ Forum noted the report.
