1 Total schools budget is drawn from local authorities Section 52 Budget Statements (Table 1) submitted to the DfES. This is calculated as the gross elements of lines 1.0.1 to 1.1.2 and 1.6.1 to 1.6.5 plus the net elements of the remainder of the schools budget.

2 The total amount delegated to schools includes the individual schools budget for local authority maintained nursery, primary, secondary and special schools as well as any school standards grant, devolved standards fund, excellence in cities grant, devolved threshold and performance pay, transitional support grant and support for schools in financial difficulty devolved to those schools.

3 The figures above exclude any school standards grants for pupil referral units.

4 Cash figures are rounded to the nearest £1,000 and, therefore, may not sum due to rounding. Cash terms figures as reported by local authorities as at 19 October 2006.
