Pupils: Per Capita Costs

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what average funding per pupil was allocated to each education and library board area in each of the last six years. (127112)

The following table sets out the average funding per pupil delegated to schools in each education and library board area under local management of schools arrangements in each of the last six years. Further funding is allocated directly to education and library boards for a wide range of services, some which benefit all pupils while others are more specifically targeted. Accordingly it is not possible to present that funding accurately on a per-pupil basis.
