Helen Jones: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) how much funding his Department has allocated to the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in each of the last five years, broken down by category of expenditure; 
(2) what outcomes were expected of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust for each category of funding allocated to it by his Department in each of the past five years; and if he will provide an assessment of how the organisation performed against each expected outcome. 
Each programme line has separately agreed outcomes, negotiated over varying time-frames, and which are subject to appropriate reporting and monitoring procedures. SSAT has met all of the Department's conditions of funding.
There are many aspects of SSAT's work which contribute to the overall success of the Specialist Schools and Academies programmes. The headline
success criteria for the Specialist Schools Programme are the numbers of schools achieving and maintaining specialist school status, and raising achievement at Key Stage 4. On the first of these, we are on track to achieve the target of 95 per cent. of eligible mainstream schools to become specialist or academies by the end of 2008. On the second, specialist schools have consistently outperformed other schools. On average, across all specialist schools, specialist status is linked to higher results at GCSE whether this is on the 5+A*-C measure, VA or CVA.
Mr. Sheerman: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what the average full-time equivalent gross pay of teachers in Huddersfield schools was (a) in cash terms and (b) at current prices in each year since 1997. 
|School expenditure on teaching staff( 1) by local authority maintained schools( 2 ) in Kirklees local authority: 1997-98 to 2006-07( 2,3,4,5,6,7)|
|Cash terms prices (£)|
|Teaching staff (E01)||Supply teaching staff (E02)||Agency supply teaching staff (E26)||( 1) Total teaching staff|
|Real terms prices (£)|

|n/a = not available.|
(1) Expenditure by maintained schools on teaching staff includes all expenditure on salaries and wages consisting of gross pay, including bonuses and allowances, maternity pay and the employers contributions to national insurance and superannuation. This relates to all teachers (including supply teachers) paid within the scope of the School Teachers Pay and Conditions Act 1991/Education Act 2002. The figures for 2002-03 onwards also include the cost paid to an agency for teaching staff that have been brought in to cover teacher absence.
(2) Includes expenditure by all local authority maintained nursery, primary, secondary and special schools in Kirklees local authority. However the figures for 2002-03 exclude any expenditure by local authority maintained nursery schools in Kirklees as expenditure by those schools was not collected in that year.
(3) 1999-2000 saw a change in data source when the data collection moved from the RO1 form collected by the ODPM to the Section 52 form from the DfES. 2002-03 saw a further break in the time series following the introduction of Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) to schools and the associated restructuring of the outturn tables. The change in sources is shown by the blank row.
(4) The calculation for 2002-03 onwards is broadly similar to the calculation in previous years. However, for some LAs, expenditure that had previously been attributed to the school sectors was reported within the central LA part of the form from 2002-03, and would therefore be excluded for 2002-03 onwards. However the exact amount of this is not quantifiable from existing sources.
(5) Spending in 1997-98 reflects the transfer of monies from local government to central government for the nursery vouchers scheme. These were returned to local government from 1998-99.
(6) The 1999-2000 figures reflect the return of GM schools to local authority maintenance.
(7) 2006-07 figures is subject to change by the local authority.
1. Figures are rounded to the nearest thousand pounds.
2. Cash terms figures are converted to 2006-07 prices using the October 2007 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) deflators.
3. Figures as reported by Kirklees local authority as at 7 November 2007.
