Jim Knight [holding answer 1 February 2007]: The available information relating to Voluntary Aided Roman Catholic schools is contained in the following tables:
|Total budget share plus grants( 1'2) allocated( 3) to local authority maintained catholic faith schools( 4) in England2000-01 to 2006-07: Cash terms figures( 5) as reported by local authorities as at 31 January 2007.|
|Total number of local authority maintained schools classified as catholic( 4)||Total budget share plus grants allocated to local authority maintained catholic faith schools( 1,2,3 ) (£)|
| Notes:(1) Budget share plus grants is the combination of the schools individual budget share plus any revenue grants allocated to the school at the start of the financial year. In 2000-01, any school standards grant allocated to individual schools at the start of the financial year was not recorded and is therefore excluded from the 2000-01 figures. Similarly, in 2003-04, any excellence in cities grant allocated to schools was not recorded and is therefore excluded from the 2003-04 figures. (2) Figures for secondary schools include any Learning and Skills Council (LSC) funding for schools with sixth forms. (3) The amount of money allocated to a school depends very much on the individual local authorities' own policy for funding their schools. Different authorities retain varying amounts of funding centrally to spend on behalf of their schools while others chose to give schools more autonomy over how they spend their money by devolving more funding to the individual school. (4) A school has been classified as a catholic faith school according to the religious character indicator on Edubase (the department's database of educational establishments). This classification only includes local authority maintained faith schools solely classified as catholic as at 31 January 2007 and therefore excludes any faith schools jointly provided by the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church. (5) Cash figures are rounded to the nearest £1,000. (6) Financial data are drawn from local authorities Section 52 Budget Statements (Table 2) submitted to the Department for Education and Skills. Figures are not available prior to the 2000-01 financial year.|
