The notional NFF figures are based on 2018-19 pupil data.</p><p>Total funding per pupil, which includes both pupil-led and school-led funding, may decrease when the number of pupils increases because school-led funding, which does not vary with pupil numbers, is divided by a greater number of pupils.
