The review of the School Premises Regulations (kitchen and dining facilities) was instigated by the previous Government. On 5 July the Secretary of State announced a review into the Department for Education's capital spending. The overall aim of the review is to ensure that future capital investment represents good value for money and strongly supports the Government's ambitions to reduce the deficit, raise standards and tackle disadvantage. It includes a review of requirements on schools with an aim to reduce burdens.
The terms of reference for the review and further information can be found on the DfE website at the following link: http://www.education.gov.uk/news/news/bsf-review.
