The Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) was open to all schools and sixth-form colleges. Local authorities, dioceses, academy trusts and voluntary bodies were invited to submit applications on behalf of schools.

The PSBP is targeted at schools with the most urgent building condition issues and the 261 highest priority schools that applied will be rebuilt or have their building condition needs met through the programme.

In order to fulfil the Public Sector Equality Duty under s.149 Equality Act, an equality analysis was carried out by the department and considered by Ministers in making their decision about which schools are in the PSBP. The equality analysis is published with this answer.
