From 2007-08 local authorities were given £238 million to support the development of extended schools in their area. In 2008-09 to 2010-11 a total of £1.3 billion of funding will be made available. Schools are also given an additional £150 million each year through the schools standards grant which can support extended schools activities.
During 2007-08, a total of £9.7 million was split across the three national extended schools delivery partners to help schools and local authorities to deliver extended services. For 2008-09, a total of £9.9 million will be made available. We cannot estimate the costs from 2009 onwards, as the allocation of funding for the delivery partners is completed on an annual basis.
