North East Lincolnshire bid for, and is taking up, an advance of £775,000 Primary Programme funding from 2010-11 in the current financial year. If the local authority and Voluntary Aided schools had applied for the maximum available advances, they would have received advances of £5,378 for Primary Capital, £1,979 for Modernisation, and £212,000 in respect of Voluntary Aided schools.
In common with all other authorities, all maintained schools in North East Lincolnshire were allocated a Devolved Formula Capital advance calculated as 40 per cent. of the estimated 2010-11 allocation. In the case of the local authority and Voluntary Aided schools, this amounted to £1,284.
