The Department does not collect data on the level of funding devolved by local authorities to individual schools for extended out-of-hours provision. How funding is distributed to individual schools is a matter for local determination. Nationally, the revenue funding provided to local authorities through the 2010-11 Standards Fund grant for the sustainability and disadvantage elements of extended services has not been reduced. From April 2011 onwards, funding for extended services currently provided to local authorities and schools through the Standards Fund will form part of the baseline for the Dedicated Schools Grant. Schools, including academies and free schools, will have freedom and flexibility to spend their budgets to support their pupils in the ways they judge best.
