Education: Per Capita Costs

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the average (a) primary and (b) secondary school per pupil funding is in each local authority area in 2008-09; and if he will make a statement. (249932)

The per pupil revenue funding figures for each local authority for 2008-09 are shown in the following table. Since 2006-07, the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) is the main source of school funding. As the DSG is distributed through a single guaranteed unit of funding per pupil and is distributed from central government to local government, a primary/secondary split on a central to local government basis is not available. The following figures are for all funded pupils aged three-19 and are provided in cash terms:

2008-09 DSG plus grants per pupil
