Mrs. Maria Miller: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which non-departmental public bodies have received funding from his Department in each year since its inception; and how much was paid to each in each such year.

The following table shows the amounts paid to the Department's non-departmental public bodies as grant in aid for financial years 2007-08 and 2008-09. This information is drawn from the Department's published resource accounts. Information for 2009-10 will not be available until the resource accounts are published in July.

Bob Russell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will make it a requirement that emergency life support skills are included in the compulsory Personal, Health, Social and Economic curriculum; and if he will make a statement. 
Ms Diana R. Johnson: Children and young people already learn about emergency life support skills as part of Personal Social Health and Economic (PSHE) education. They learn about where and how to obtain health information, how to recognise and follow health and safety procedures, ways of reducing risk and minimising harm in risky situations, how to find sources of emergency help and how to use basic and emergency first aid.
Mr. Ruffley: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children have been permanently excluded from (a) primary, (b) middle, (c) upper and (d) secondary schools in Suffolk in each year since 1997. 
From 2002, the Department has carried out a checking exercise to confirm the overall number of permanent exclusions. However, this only confirms the number of exclusions in each local authority area and not at school level. Therefore information for middle and upper schools are not separately identifiable.
|Maintained primary and secondary schools( 1) : Number of pupil enrolments( 2) with permanent exclusions, 1996/97 to 2007/08, Suffolk local authority|
|Primary( 1)||State-funded secondary schools( 1, 3)|
|Number of permanent exclusions||Percentage of the school population( 4)||Number of permanent exclusions||Percentage of the school population( 4)|
|(1) Includes middle schools as deemed (upper schools are included in state-funded secondary schools). (2) Pupils may be counted more than once if they were registered at more than one school or moved schools during the school year. (3 )State-funded secondary schools include maintained secondary schools, city technology colleges and academies. Suffolk local authority has no city technology colleges or academies. (4) The number of permanent exclusions expressed as a percentage of the number (headcount) of all pupils (excluding dually registered pupils) in January each year for the relevant school type. (5 )Estimates based on local authority figures following a checking exercise to confirm the overall number of permanent exclusions in each local authority. Note: Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10. Source: Termly Exclusions Survey and School Census.|
Andrew Rosindell: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much his Department spent per child on (a) primary and (b) secondary schools in (i) Greater London and (ii) Romford in the latest period for which figures are available. 
Mr. Coaker: The Department allocates education funding to local authorities so the requested information for Greater London and Romford constituency is not available. The available information on how much was spent per child in primary and secondary schools in Havering and Greater London is shown in the following table:
|Primary education||Secondary education|
1. School based expenditure includes only expenditure incurred directly by the schools. This includes the pay of teachers and school-based support staff, school premises costs, books and equipment, and certain other supplies and services, less any capital items funded from recurrent spending and income from sales, fees and charges and rents and rates. This excludes the central cost of support services such as home to school transport, local authority administration and the financing of capital expenditure.
2. The calculation for 2002-03 onwards is broadly similar to the calculation in previous years. However, 2001-02 and earlier years includes all premature retirement compensation (PRC) and Crombie payments, mandatory PRC payments and other indirect employee expenses. In 2001-02 this accounted for approximately £70 per pupil. From 2002-03 onwards only the schools element of these categories is included and this accounted for approximately £50 per pupil of the 2002-03 total. Also, for some LAs, expenditure that had previously been attributed to the school sectors was reported within the LA part of the form from 2002-03, though this is not quantifiable from existing sources.
3. Pupil numbers include only those pupils attending maintained establishments within each sector and are drawn from the DfES Annual Schools Census adjusted to be on a financial year basis.
4. Figures are rounded to the nearest £10 and are in Cash Terms.
