To date, no capital expenditure relating to the Isle of Wight has been brought forward to 2008-09 or 2009-10 from our original plans. The Isle of Wight and its schools are receiving capital support of £6.5 million in 2008-09 and £11.6 million in 2009-10. The increase in 2009-10 reflects an allocation of £3 million for the new Primary Capital programme, also £2 million Targeted Capital funding. In addition, the authority has a Building Schools for the Future pathfinder project which is receiving capital support of £32 million.
