The Local Authority and School Expenditure publication provides the latest information at national and local level on local authority (LA) spending on education, children's services, and social care. Information is also included on local authority maintained schools' income, expenditure and their revenue balances.
Academy school finance data is published separately. Local authorities (LAs) report their finances using a standard financial year (April to March), while academies report on a financial and academic year of September to August. Since the data relate to different time periods, the two are not directly comparable.
