How much per-pupil funding will your school get?

The Dedicated School Grant (DSG) for 2014/15 has been published with per-pupil funding once again ranging from around £3,950 to as much as £8,595.

London authorities dominate the list of highest per-pupil funding, with the City of London getting the most at £8,595 ahead of Tower Hamlets (£7,014) and Hackney (£6,680.05).

Nottingham is the highest outside of the capital, receiving £5,309, while Birmingham gets £5,218 and Manchester £5,088.

At the other end of the scale, Cambridgeshire is the worst funded per-pupil at £3,950, followed by South Gloucestershire (£3,969) and Leicestershire (£3,995).

The average for all authorities across England is £4,550.54 per-pupil.

In addition to the per-pupil funding, local authorities will also receive a “high needs” allocation for students with additional learning needs.

A statement from the Department for Education (DfE) said that in order to protect local authorities with falling pupil numbers, arrangements have been continued to ensure that no authority loses more than two per cent of its budget in cash terms.
