Notes: 1. The financial information used in the answer to this PQ is taken from the Department's section 52 data collection. 2. 1999-2000 saw a change in data source when the data collection moved from the RO1 form collected by CLG (formerly ODPM) to the section 52 form (now section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009) from the DCSF. 2002-03 saw a further break in the time series following the introduction of Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) and the associated restructuring of the outturn tables. The change in sources is shown by the blank row. From 2002-03 school-based expenditure is taken from section 52 Outturn Table A line 51 net current expenditure (NCE). For 2001-02 and earlier years the expenditure is calculated as lines 1 to 12 less lines 29, 30, 35 and 37. This differs from the old Net Institutional Expenditure (NIE) calculation only in the treatment of meals and milk which is no longer excluded and no adjustments for balances are now made. This is taken from section 52 Outturn Table 3 for 1999-2000 to 2001-02 and from the RO1 form previously. 3. Expenditure was not distinguished between the pre-primary and primary sectors until the inception of section 52 for financial year 1999-2000. 4. School-based expenditure in LA-maintained nursery schools was not recorded in 2002-03 and comparable figures are not available for 2003-04 onwards. 5. Figures are rounded to the nearest £1,000. Cash terms figures as reported by local authorities as at 26 March 2010.
