Footnotes

  1. There are a small number of local authorities with no LA maintained secondary schools, all are academies. There are also authorities returning no nursery schools, pupil referral units or special schools. Full details are in the methodology document. These local authorities will be uncoloured in the maps above.
  2. Expenditure per pupil is based on the number of pupils on roll as at the January 2023 School Census. PRUs see more variation in pupil numbers through the course of the year than other school types. Funding for PRUs is based on number of available places.
