The Department primarily allocates revenue funding for schools at local authority level, and does not identify funding for primary and secondary schools separately. The table in the attachment shows per pupil revenue funding figures from 2012-13 to 2017-18 for each local authority.

Figures are not directly comparable from year to year: in 2012-13 local authorities were allocated a General Unit of Funding (GUF), which covered schools, high needs and early years funding. From 2013-14, this was split into separate schools, high needs and early years blocks. Schools block allocations for 2017-18 reflect the most recent spending decisions by individual local authorities, including transfers between the schools and high needs block.

The schools block allocation for all individual schools for 2016-17 are published at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/schools-block-funding-allocations-2016-to-2017.
