My noble Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the School System (Baroness Barran) has made the following statement.
Today, I am announcing the allocation of £498 million for 1,405 Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) projects across 1,129 academies, sixth-form colleges and voluntary aided schools to maintain and improve the condition of the education estate.
This funding is provided to enable schools to provide well maintained facilities and give students safe environments that support a high-quality education. Since March 2015 CIF has delivered 9,148 projects and continues to deliver 1,905 projects across the school estate with essential maintenance projects.
Details of this announcement have been sent to all CIF applicants and a list of successful projects has been published on www.gov.uk. I will also place copies in the House Library.
