To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what recent estimate he has made of the amount of funding made available for the disabled students premium in 2020-21.
13 November 2020
The Disabled Students’ Premium is allocated by the Office for Students (OfS) each year.
The budget for the disabled students premium in academic year 2020/21 is £39.7 million.
In his strategic guidance letter to the OfS in January this year, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, asked the OfS to continue to prioritise allocations for the student premium.
