The £800 million basic need funding has been allocated to local authorities. This is because local authorities are responsible for ensuring that there are sufficient school places locally to meet demand. Local authorities can use this money to fund projects at any publicly funded schools, including voluntary-aided schools and academies (including at existing or new Free Schools) where they address basic need pressures.
The proportion of the funding available for capital maintenance which has been allocated to each authority has been determined by school and weighted pupil numbers from the most recent data available. The voluntary-aided sector has been allocated a fair share based on pupil numbers, and reflecting the governors’ 10 per cent contribution and eligibility for VAT.
Allocations have been abated where schools have been or are about to be modernised through the Building Schools for the Future programme, or through privately financed projects.
£200 million of devolved formula capital funding has been allocated directly to all publicly funded schools, based on a national formula of £4000 per school and a per pupil sum which is weighted for the type of pupil: £11.25/16.875/33.75 for primary/secondary/SEN pupils. Allocations at local authority level are indicative and will be adjusted in line with end-of-year pupil figures in maintained schools.
As was the case in 2011-12, all of these allocations will be delivered as capital grant.
This announcement does not include any of the additional £600 million for basic need allocated to the Department in the autumn statement. Ministers will consider how best to allocate this funding.
