4 Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG) £26.7bn This new grant provides over two-thirds of English maintained schools funding. At school level most of this grant will be spent on salaries. The Government gives the grant to Local Authorities and it is ring-fenced for education. Local Authorities can top up the DSG with locally raised funding but cannot reduce it. DSG includes allocations for Personalised Learning (£220m in 2006/07 and £565m in 2007/08) and KS3 Practical Learning Options (£40m and 370m respectively). Further funding to support Personalised Learning was announced in the Budget and will be allocated via the School Standards Grant (see later in this document). Local Authorities (LAs) with falling rolls are protected by minimum funding increase of 4% in cash terms. Primary schools will get a minimum increase of 4.0% per pupil and for Secondary schools a minimum 3.4% increase per pupil.
