Average amount of educational grant received per pupil

The average amount of funding received per pupil increased in 2015/16 but remains lower than those for West Midlands and England.  Grant figures for 2016/17 are:

 Shropshire £4401.81

West Midlands £4645.41

England £4636.43

Statistical Neighbours £4369.49

 Whilst grant levels did improve in 2015/16 and remain at similar levels in 2016/17 the number of pupils on roll has reduced resulting in an overall reduction of funding.
