UIN HL6400, tabled on 2 July 2020

State-funded schools have continued to receive their budgets for the year, as usual, regardless of any periods of partial or complete closure. This has ensured that schools have been able to continue to pay their staff in full and meet their other regular financial commitments.

The specific information requested at (1) and (2) is not held centrally by the department.
