Government Education Funding Statement

Schools Capital
  • The Government will provide £500 million to help local authorities provide extra school places – meeting the extra pressures caused by increased birth rates.
  • A new school rebuilding programme has been launched. It will be targeted at those schools in the worst condition. Information will be available shortly from Partnership for Schools.
  • School Building regulations will be pared down significantly – cutting red tape and costs.
  • The Government is minded not to fund the BSF projects which were the subject of a judicial review earlier this year, subject to further representations from the authorities involved.
  • The recommendations of Sebastian James’s review on school building will be broadly accepted subject to a thorough consultation process on details and implementation. This consultation  has been launched here
  • .The government will carry out a condition survey of all school buildings so that funding can be better targeted. They will revise school building regulations to reduce unnecessary burdens and bureaucracy. They will also improve the design of schools to achieve better buildings and better value.
