Schools: Capital Investment

Volume 485: debated on Monday 8 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families which (a) schools and (b) local authorities will receive extra funding in each of the next two years for school capital projects as a result of the pre-budget report announcement. (240596)

Local authorities have been invited to bid to bring forward school capital allocations from 2010-11 to 2009-10. Bids are due to be received before Christmas, and the Department aims to confirm allocations to authorities in January. This is not extra funding, but the bringing forward of funding from 2010-11 into 2009-10.

The allocation of funding to individual schools will be determined at local level in accordance with priorities set out in asset management plans. The Department does not maintain a central record of these.
