Capital allocations are made on a local authority basis, and are then prioritised locally. Similarly, local authorities determine the relative spend on primary and secondary schools. Accordingly, there is no central record of spend for North East Derbyshire, or of the split between primary and secondary schools.
School capital allocations to Derbyshire for school improvement, during the 14 year period 1996-97 to 2009-10, total £633 million. The local authority will also have spent revenue funding on those elements of refurbishment that are of a revenue nature. The total referred to above includes an allocation of nearly £115 million for the Building Schools for the Future programme.
