Schools and local authorities use their core funding to varying degrees to support behaviour and attendance, but the amounts spent on these activities are not separately identified. In addition to these sums, the Government make available specific funding—through the Standards Fund or through direct grant support, earmarked for behaviour and attendance related activities. In the 2005–06 financial year, this funding is expected to amount to about £310 million through the Behaviour Improvement Programme, the Learning Mentor and Learning Support Unit strands of Excellence in Cities, and the Behaviour and Attendance strands of the Primary and Secondary National Strategies.
