Funding allocated to schools relating to SEN pupils is £8.4m in 2011/12 and £9.9m for 2010/11. This relates to both individually assigned resources (i.e. pupils with statements) and those without statements i.e. outside the main SEN banding. Source: s251 / s52 Budget Statement.

6. How much funding was allocated to children in care for education in 2010/2011 and 2011/2012?

No separate funding is delegated to schools or settings specifically for the education of children in care, other than funding to enhance the existing provision e.g. pupil premium grant for looked after children that was introduced in 2011/12. The PPG for looked after children paid to schools was £31,000 in 2011/12.
