Table 1 as follows details the funding which Partnerships for Schools plans to allocate to Building Schools for the Future projects in waves 1, 2 and 3. Funding is provided to local authorities as an 'envelope' to allow local allocation of resources to individual schools in accordance with local priorities. As projects develop, the funding allocations are updated, so it is likely that the final allocations will change. Funding levels have not yet been confirmed for live projects in wave 4 and beyond. However, table 2 shows current indicative allocations, which are subject to change, for each wave 4 authority.
