Data in this dashboard is for state-funded schools in England only. Schools with 20 or fewer pupils have been excluded.
Core revenue funding for schools is also known as the schools block, which is a component of the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). The schools block excludes high (special) needs funding, early years funding, and the pupil premium.
Constituency level figures are figures that have been built up from school-level schools block allocations (all schools which receive schools block funding are included). These figures are published as transparency data by the Department for Education. Per pupil data is calculated by dividing schools block funding allocations, by the number of pupils on roll.
Regional and England figures are derived from a different DfE data source: annual DSG allocations. From 2018-19, Region/ England figures include Central School Services block (CSSB) funding. 2018-19 was the first year in which CSSB has been allocated.
In the “schools in the constituency tab”, primary schools are defined as state-funded mainstream primary schools or middle deemed primary schools. Secondary schools are defined as state-funded mainstream secondary schools or middle deemed secondary schools.
Data is in real terms (2020-21 prices). The pandemic has caused unusual movements in the GDP deflator, which is used to measure inflation in the economy. This means that for the three years 2020, 2021 and 2022 it does not provide an accurate representation of price changes over this period. Using published GDP deflator values to calculate real-terms changes that include either 2020, 2021 or 2022, but not all three, will not provide a reliable indicator of the actual purchasing power of government spending. GDP deflator growth for 2020-21, 2021- 22 and 2022-23 have been averaged across the three years to smooth the distortions caused by pandemic-related factors. OBR forecasts are used for 2021-22 and 2022-23.
We aim to update this dashboard annually, in line with data releases from the Department of Education, but the data shown here may not be the latest available. MPs and their staff can contact the Commons Library with queries about updates.
