The Department engages regularly with His Majesty’s Treasury on a number of matters, including capital investment in the school estate. This includes official level and ministerial level engagement where appropriate.

Well-maintained, safe school buildings are a priority for the Department. The Department has allocated over £13 billion in capital funding since 2015, for improving the condition of the school estate, including £1.8 billion in the 2022/2023 financial year. In addition, the Department’s school rebuilding programme will transform 500 schools over the next decade.
