Local authorities are required under section 251 of the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 to submit an education and children’s social care budget statement to the Secretary of State for Education. The table below shows the total schools revenue budget in Bradford for each financial year from 2010-2011 to 2014-2015.

For the financial years 2011–2012 to 2012–2013, the table contains schools revenue budget data for local authority maintained schools only, excluding academies. From 2013-2014, the total schools revenue budget has been reported to the Department for Education prior to academy recoupment and does therefore include academy data.
During 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 the schools revenue budget data included the pupil premium. In 2013–2014 and 2014–2015 the pupil premium was paid as a separate grant and no longer included in this data.
