Schools: Entertainments

Volume 472: debated on Wednesday 5 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether his Department issues guidance to schools on the (a) holding and (b) funding of staff parties. (189106)

The Department does not issue such guidance. Funding is delegated for the ‘purpose of the school’. The definition does not go into detail further than this, however we would expect local authorities as part of their financial management policies to provide guidance on the use of funds for these types of purposes.
