DSG Monitoring Report 2022/23


NB presented the first DSG monitoring report for 2022/23, with a summary to the end of Q2. The half year position showed that the Schools, Central School Services and Early Years blocks are generally on track. The High Needs block is forecasting an overspend of £2.2 million in 2022/23. NB briefly described some of the local authority actions to address the overspend, including structural systems for monitoring spend, and collaborative work with other partners. The result of the LA actions so far has been to reduce the deficit significantly from the 2021/22 level of £4.7 million.


Forum members were asked to note the report as the background for the next items on the agenda. There were no questions or comments.
