School Funding (Newcastle)

Mr. Cousins: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Employment if he will list the schools in the City of Newcastle upon Tyne which received cash resources directly in the financial year 2000-01, with the sum for each school; and if he will estimate how much will be allocated in 2001-02 on the basis of his proposals in the pre-Budget report. [148817]

Ms Estelle Morris [holding answer 5 February 2001]: The following table shows the School Standards Grant entitlement for each school in 2000-01. In 2001-02 the estimated total School Standards Grant for Newcastle education authority will amount to £2.8 million. Amounts for that year cannot yet be shown for individual schools, but the typical primary school will receive £20,000 and the typical secondary school, £60,000. In addition devolved formula capital grants are payable: in 2000-01 these are £12,000 for a typical primary school and £36,000 for a typical secondary school, increasing progressively to £16,000 and £50,000 respectively by 2003-04.
