£2.4bn supports the drive for 600,000 extra places

£2.4bn supports the drive for 600,000 extra places

A £2.4 billion cash injection aimed at creating hundreds of thousands of extra school places, as well as improving and expanding thousands of school buildings, was confirmed by DfE in April.

The funding will support the Government’s drive to help create over 600,000 extra places by 2021. Schools, local authorities and academy trusts will also receive a share of £1.4 billion to invest in upgrading or improving their school buildings. As part of this, academies and sixth-form colleges throughout the country, will receive a total of £466m to pay for almost 1,500 essential school building work projects.

The total funding also includes £980m of funding allocations for local authorities in 2019 to 2020 to create 60,000 school places. Local councils say they need to create over 230,000 primary and secondary school places nationally between 2017 and 2020 and the DfE expects the new monies to generate additional capacity to meet local demand.

The multi-billion-pound investment underpins the Government’s Plan for Britain, which promises every child access to a ‘good’ school place. The Government is also considering wider proposals which it believes will ensure school standards continue to rise. These proposals include lifting the ban on new grammar schools - on the strict condition they improve the education of other pupils in the system - as well as harnessing the expertise and resources of universities as well as independent and faith schools.
