Annal Nayyar- Education Secretary Michael Gove has issued a written ministerial statement on funding allocations.

Education Secretary Michael Gove has today (18 December 2013) announced £2.35 billion to create more school places up to 2017. This is in addition to the £5 billion that will have been spent on new school places by 2015.

It is the first time councils have had 3-year allocations of funding to spend on school places. It means they can plan ahead and ensure every child has a school place.

In a written ministerial statement issued today, Mr Gove announced that 260,000 new school places have been created to date, and that many more were on their way.

He also announced:

  • Sebastian James’s review of progress      since his original report on education capital
  • the dedicated schools grant for 2014      to 2015
  • further information on the £150      million of capital funding to support universal free school meals
