To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families with reference to the answer to the hon. Member for Surrey Heath of 9 September 2009, Official Report, columns 1937-8W, on schools, what proportion of the expenditure on curriculum is received by schools; and if he will make a statement.
Diana Johnson (Parliamentary Under-Secretary, Department for Children, Schools and Families; Kingston upon Hull North, Labour)
In 2010-2011, £3.5 million will be allocated directly to schools to support the delivery of the science curriculum and at least £21 million for primary languages. However, all planned expenditure on schools will assist them in the delivery of the curriculum.
