Dear Westminster City Council,

Schools block and high needs block are components of the Direct Schools Grant. School Forums can move money between blocks.

We are enquiring about whether Westminster Schools Forum has made such transfers for the years 2013/14 to 2018/19.

Your Director of Schools Finance will hold this information.

Yours sincerely,

Aisha Latif
