Pupil Funding

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

11. To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much funding per pupil his Department allocated to (a) secondary and (b) primary schools in (i) North Wiltshire constituency and (ii) Normanton constituency for 2009-10. (292202)

The Government allocate funding to local authorities, not by constituency, so we do not hold figures for North Wiltshire or Normanton constituencies. Separate figures are not available for primary and secondary schools as funding is not allocated by phase.

The guaranteed funding per pupil for Wiltshire for 2009-10 is £3,849, and for Wakefield it is £4,022. The amount of Dedicated Schools Grant that local authorities receive is dependant on the number of pupils on roll. Wiltshire has received just over £243 million and Wakefield £182 million for 2009-10.
