1 Total schools’ budget is drawn from local authorities Section 52 Budget Statements submitted to the DfES. This is calculated as the gross elements of any grants plus the net elements of the remainder of the budget.

2 The total amount delegated to schools includes the individual schools’ budget as well as any school standards grants, devolved standards fund allocation, excellence in cities grant, additional targeted transitional grant, advance of transitional grant and support for schools in financial difficulty.

3 Cash figures are rounded to the nearest £1,000 and, therefore, may not sum due to rounding. Figures as reported by local authorities as at 23 June 2006.
