The Department for Education allocates a significant amount of capital funding to local authorities so that they have the freedom to decide upon their school investment needs according to local priorities. The Department does not collect information on how these funds have been used.

The capital support allocated to Worcestershire, and its schools, since the financial, year 2010-11 is given in the following table:

Financial year Capital support(1) (£ million)
2010-11 32.0
2011-12 30.5
2012-13 26.8
2013-14 (provisional) 14.9
(1) These figures include £6.9 million of funding provided directly to academies through the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund (ACMF).
