The Department maintains records of allocations made, on a local authority basis, to local authorities and schools in England. It does not maintain separate records of primary and secondary schools, as expenditure on these is prioritised locally. It does not maintain records of further education college allocations. Actual expenditure within an authority will differ from allocations made. This is due to (a) timing differences between allocations and spend (b) local prioritisation (c) other local resources. Allocations are made on a three year basis, currently covering the years 2008-09 to 2010-11. Accordingly, no figures are maintained beyond 2010-11. Allocations made so far in respect of England, the North West, Middlesbrough and Cleveland, for the period 2009-10 and 2010-11 are set out in the following table.
