Annal Nayyar -Targeted Basic Need Programme latest information from the EFA

In his Autumn Statement on 5 December, the Chancellor announced that the Government will provide additional investment of £982 million for schools in England over the remainder of this parliament.

 With this additional money, we are now launching the Targeted Basic Need Programme to fund the provision of new, high quality school places in the areas that need it most. The programme will offer additional support to those local authorities experiencing the greatest pressure on places and will help them to prepare for further rises in pupil numbers. The programme will deliver new academies and Free Schools, as well as enabling investment to expand existing good and outstanding schools. Further details are available on the Department for Education’s website .
