Pupil Referral Units: Gloucestershire

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the average per capita cost was of providing full-time education provision for a secondary school aged pupil in a pupil referral unit in Gloucestershire in 2008-09. (309378)

Consistent financial reporting 2008-09 provides income and expenditure data across a wide range of categories on a consistent basis for all local authority maintained schools in England. The data underpin the Schools Financial Benchmarking website which provides schools with the tools to compare their income and expenditure profile with that of schools in similar circumstances so that they can make informed decisions on how to manage their resources effectively.

While a CFR return is optional for pupil referral units all four PRUs in Gloucestershire submitted a return in 2008-09. They received on average £11,300 per pupil from Government sources in 2008-09. It is not possible to split this by phase of education. This includes funds delegated by the LA; funding for sixth form students; SEN funding; funding for minority ethnic pupils; Standards Fund; School Standards Grant (SSG)—pupil focused; pupil focused extended school funding and/or grants and other Government grants.
