On Monday 9 February, we announced over £6bn of new investment for maintaining and improving the condition of the school estate. We are investing around £2bn in the second phase of the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) to rebuild and refurbish school buildings in the very worst condition, between 2015-2021. We are also allocating over £4bn, between 2015-2018, to schools, local authorities, academy trusts and voluntary aided partnerships to improve their own schools.
This is on top of the £18bn of capital investment the Government has already invested in the school estate between 2011-15 - including investment to improve and maintain school buildings and funding for new school places.
For the first time, we announced indicative condition allocations covering three years from 2015-16 to 2017-18, helping those responsible to plan ahead effectively.
