This section allows you to compare the outcomes schools achieve with how they spend their money, and so ask questions about how they could use their resources more efficiently and effectively.

Figures are shown as income or spend per pupil at the school to make comparisons easier.

Please note - In comparing schools, you should consider the percentage of children eligible for free school meals (FSM), the type of school and whether the school is in London or not to make meaningful comparisons on spending data. his is why we have put schools into low, medium and high FSM bands and provided separate median averages for London and non-London local authorities (LAs)

To use the tables you have the option of selecting a particular school (by selecting the circle to the left of the school name) which will filter the data so only schools with the same level of FSM eligibility are shown

Please Note - Information on academies and free schools’ income and expenditure can be found in their annual report and financial statements that can be downloaded from their school pages
