To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the average Government spending was in the latest period for which figures are available per child in (a) primary and (b) secondary schools in each London borough. (169237)

The revenue per pupil figures shown in the following table are taken from the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) which was introduced in April 2006. The DSG is distributed through a single guaranteed unit of funding per pupil so a split between primary and secondary funding is not available. The figures are for all funded pupils aged 3-15.
