Specialist Schools and Academies Trust

Volume 487: debated on Monday 26 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what funding his Department has allocated to the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in the next three years; and if he will make a statement. (247410)

The Department funds the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust through a range of grants and contracts to support the Specialist Schools and Academies programmes and a range of other activities designed to raise pupil achievement. We estimate that total funding for SSAT through grants and contracts in 2008-09 will be £28,436,169. DCSF negotiates funding levels each year for individual grants and contracts. We are not in a position to estimate what the level of funding will be in future years—this will depend on our priorities at the time.
