The Home Office does not allocate funding for school security on a per pupil basis. The funding allocation for each school is based on a security assessment of the guarding requirements to secure the pupils on that site.

Spending on the Jewish Community Protective Security Grant, which includes schools, colleges, nurseries, communal sites and synagogues for previous years is:

2015-16: £10.9m

2016-17: £13.4m*

2017-18: £13.4m*

*includes a £3.0m contribution from the Department for Education in relation to security of Jewish state and free schools.
