Notes:

1. Figures reflect relevant sub-blocks of Education Formula Spending (EFS) settlements, including the pensions transfer to EFS.

2. Total funding also includes all revenue grants in DfES departmental expenditure limits relevant to pupils aged 11 to 15 and exclude education maintenance allowances (EMAs) and grants not allocated at LEA level.

3. The pupil numbers used to convert £ million figures to £ per pupil are those underlying the EFS settlement calculations.

4. Some of the grant allocations have not been finalised. If these do change, the effect on the funding figures is expected to be minimal.

5. Figures are in cash and rounded to the nearest 10.
