In the Autumn Statement 2011, the Treasury announced an additional £600 million of capital basic need funding for schools in England. On 11 April 2012, the Secretary of State announced the allocation of this funding for local authorities.
A full schedule of these allocations at local authority level can be downloaded below.
The funding has been allocated using 100 per cent capacity data to fund the shortfall in places as at 2013-14 (the same method we used for the £500m redirected basic need funding in November last year). Data will be taken from the existing 2011 Schools Capacity Forecast return.
The letters to the chair of the select committee and the Leader of the Opposition and the capital allocations spreadsheet are listed in the associated resource links below.
