Volume 487: debated on Thursday 5 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what his policy is on the provision of funding for children in their final year of secondary school who have repeated a year. (253700)

Local authorities receive revenue funding according to the number of pupils they have on roll at the spring school census—this would include those pupils that are repeating a year. Local authorities will apply their local funding formulae to fund schools in their area which takes account of all the children attending school.
