To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how much funding was allocated from the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund for projects on (a) mental health, (b) physical health and (c) other purposes.
All Healthy Pupils Capital Fund (HPCF) projects funded through the Condition Improvement Fund 2018-19 were assessed against the HPCF funding criteria to improve children’s and young people’s physical and mental health by enhancing access to facilities for physical activity, healthy eating, mental health and wellbeing and medical conditions. Details of successful HPCF projects have been published here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/condition-improvement-fund-2018-to-2019-outcome. Projects have not been categorised by those which relate to mental health or physical health.
Local authorities and larger academy trusts received a formulaic allocation from HPCF based on pupil numbers. They have the flexibility to distribute HPCF funding in line with the HPCF criteria to meet local priorities and need. Data on the use of HPCF funding by local authorities and larger academy trusts will be collected and published in due course, as part of regular capital spend data collections.
