The expected spending on the National Strategies programmes for the period 2008-09 to 2010-11 will be in the region of £488 million, £525 million and £561 million respectively. The increased spending reflects the phased roll-out of the Every Child a Reader, Every Child Counts and Every Child a Writer intervention programmes for children in primary schools.

Funding beyond the 2007 comprehensive spending review has yet to be determined.
