This was an assessment of what local authorities needed to fund education rather than what they spent. The DSG is based largely on an authority's previous spending. In addition, the DSG has a different coverage to EFS. EFS comprised a schools block and a local education authority (LEA) block (to cover LEA central functions) whereas DSG only covers the EFS school block. LEA block items are still funded through DCLG's local government finance settlement but education items cannot be separately identified. Consequently, there is a break in the department's time series as the two sets of data are not comparable.</p><p>To provide a comparison for 2006-07 DSG, the Department has isolated the EFS school block equivalent funding in 2005-06; as described above this does not represent the totality of ‘education' funding in that year.</p><p>Figures for financial years 2005 to 2013 are shown below. These are in cash terms:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Average revenue per pupil funding (cash)</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2005-06</strong><br><strong> (baseline)</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2006-07</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2007-08</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2008-09</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2009-10</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2010-11</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2011-12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2012-13</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Warrington LA</p></td><td><p>3,630</p></td><td><p>3,840</p></td><td><p>4,100</p></td><td><p>4,300</p></td><td><p>4,490</p></td><td><p>4,730</p></td><td><p>4,670</p></td><td><p>4,670</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>These are in real terms using June 2014 GDP deflators in 2013-14 prices:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Average revenue per pupil funding (cash)</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2005-06</strong><br><strong> (baseline)</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2006-07</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2007-08</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2008-09</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2009-10</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2010-11</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2011-12</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2012-13</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Warrington LA</p></td><td><p>4,370</p></td><td><p>4,490</p></td><td><p>4,670</p></td><td><p>4,760</p></td><td><p>4,850</p></td><td><p>4,970</p></td><td><p>4,800</p></td><td><p>4,750</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>Per pupil figures are using DSG allocations plus other schools related grants, e.g. school standards grant, school standards grant (personalisation), standards fund etc. and pupils aged 3-15 rounded to the nearest £10.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Education wants to see more science graduates in teaching, both at primary and secondary level. There are currently around 26,100 primary teachers in state schools with science-related degrees (11.5%). We promote primary teaching to science graduates through our “Get into Teaching” campaign as well as supporting 500 primary places to Teach First which recruits top graduates into teaching.</p><p>In addition to initial teacher training, we are supporting a number of initiatives to improve the science knowledge of existing primary teachers. There are 266 Specialist Leaders of Education in science who are boosting other teachers’ knowledge across the country. We are also collaborating with the Wellcome Trust who are developing a programme for primary science teachers to strengthen further their expertise. In this way, they will be able to train non-specialist teachers to excel in science, providing further capacity in this important area.</p><p> </p> more like this

This is the biggest step towards fairer schools funding in a decade. It puts us in a much better position to implement a national funding formula when the time is right – after the next spending review, when there are multi-year public spending plans, and the Department can give greater certainty to schools about how the formula will affect them.</p> more like this
