Information on additional revenue support to assist children in mainstream schools with severe behavioural problems is not collected centrally.

In 2006-07, for the first time, schools received their funding from a Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) rather than as part of the local government settlement. The DSG is a ring-fenced grant and must be used for schools' budgets. It is for each local authority to distribute funding using a locally agreed formula, and for schools' governing bodies to decide how to spend the available resources.
