My most recent estimate of the funds to be allocated by the Department via the Devolved Formula Capital Programme direct to schools is £1,372 million in 2009-10 and £591 million in 2010-11. No decision has been taken concerning allocations beyond 2010-11, which is the last year in the current spending review period.
The allocation in 2009-10 includes an advance of 40 per cent. of the indicative funding for 2010-11, with a corresponding reduction in the 2010-11 figure. The advance is part of more than £900 million advanced to local authorities and schools, to stimulate local business and support employment. The 2010-11 allocation will be affected by updated pupil number figures.
