To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how much school funding for Croydon there has been in each of the previous 10 years; how many pupils there have been in such schools in each of those years; and what estimate his Department has made of the (a) funding and (b) pupil numbers for schools in Croydon in 2019-2020.

The revenue funding allocated for schools for each financial year from 2009 to 2019 for Croydon local authority are shown in the attached table. For financial year 2019-20, only the dedicated schools grant (DSG) has been allocated at this time, though this makes up the bulk of schools funding. The DSG for Croydon this year is £339.3 million. Other grants will be allocated at later points in the year.
