Each county and county borough council in Wales is an education authority and is responsible for the organisation and funding of maintained schools in its area.
The Welsh Government provides funding to local authorities for pre-16 provision in schools in Wales - whether they are maintained by the authority or are voluntary-aided schools - mainly through the local government revenue settlement (Revenue Support Grant). The other main sources of funding for local authority education budgets are council tax income and non-domestic rates income.
Funding for post-16 provision in schools is by specific grant from the Welsh Government (formerly through ELWa prior to merger with the Welsh Assembly Government on 1 April 2006).
The Welsh Government also provides capital funding for schools (apart from voluntary-aided schools) including school building improvement grant (SBIG), disabled access to schools, school premises issues and school playing fields.
From here you can access detailed information about the arrangements for funding schools in Wales, including the respective roles of the Welsh Government and local authorities, the legal framework and statistical information.
