Funding: Milton Keynes

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) how much funding his Department has allocated to teacher recruitment in Milton Keynes in each year since 1997; (279717)

(2) how much funding the Government has allocated to reducing class sizes in Milton Keynes in each of the last 10 years.

Local authorities are responsible for the distribution of funding (including funding provided through the dedicated schools grant (DSG)) to schools in their area. Each local authority in consultation with their Schools Forum can choose to include a factor in their funding formula to direct resources to schools with infant classes to enable them to meet the class size duty. The Department does not collect information on how much funding was allocated to recruiting teachers for Milton Keynes schools.
