Allocations are not calculated based on constituencies, rather by local authority area.

The revenue funding figures shown below are for 2013-18. Before 2013-14, funding allocated by the Department through the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) was allocated to local authorities as a single amount intended to fund: school budget shares including academies; local authority central services for schools; additional support for high needs pupils; and provision for early years education. In 2013-14 the DSG was divided into funding blocks for each of these areas: a schools block; central services schools block; high needs block; and early years block. The schools block is allocated based on the number of pupils in schools within each local authority. The amounts allocated by York City Council from their schools block to primary and secondary schools for each year since 2013-14 to 2018-19 are shown in the following table:
