Foundation Schools

Volume 453: debated on Monday 20 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what effect a school applying for foundation trust status will have on a programme to replace that school’s building under the Building Schools for the Future initiative. (100731)

As local authority maintained schools, trust schools will remain part of Building Schools for the Future (BSF) and must be fully included in their authority’s ‘strategy for change’ and investment project. Indeed, as BSF promotes diverse and responsive local provision, the schools in each project will consider whether trust status would be appropriate for them.
