Planning, funding and school management
The planning, funding and management of schools is crucial to providing a successful learning environment. This section is home to our policies that support this work.
Each local authority in Wales is responsible for the planning, organisation and funding of maintained schools in its area.
Local authorities need to ensure that they have the right number of schools of the right type and size and in the right locations to meet the needs of the pupil population.
The Welsh Government provides funding to local authorities for pre-16 provision in schools in Wales through the local government revenue settlement.
Funding for post-16 provision is by a grant from the Welsh Government. We also provide capital funding for schools to improve the quality of the learning environment for children and young people.
