Holding answer received on 13 May 2019

There is no known correlation at area level between rates of exclusion and levels of funding.

This Government has prioritised funds for the most disadvantaged pupils, including through the Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus, which supports looked after children. For children and young people with more complex needs, the Department has also confirmed an additional £250 million in high needs funding over 2018-19 and 2019-20, included in the £6.3 billion total for high needs funding this year.
