Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

17. To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what assessment he has made of the effects of the Building Schools for the Future programme. (146035)

Following procurement through the Official Journal of the European Union, in 2006 we placed a contract with PricewaterhouseCoopers to evaluate the impact of Building Schools for the Future investment on educational achievement and to learn early lessons to inform the development of the programme. The contract is for three years, and may be extended to support a longitudinal evaluation of the longer term impact. We aim to publish periodic reports from this evaluation.
