Building Schools for the Future Programme

Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many Building Schools for the Future projects have been completed in each local authority. [192839]

Jim Knight: Building Schools for the Future is a long-term educational investment programme that gives local authorities the opportunity to rebuild, refurbish or remodel groups of schools across their entire estate. As such, no local authorities have yet completed their project; the first ones are due for completion in 2009.
17 Mar 2008 : Column 907W
However, the programme is now making good progress; 72 authorities are now involved in waves one to six. A further 40 authorities are receiving funding for a single school project. Together with academies, a total of around 1,000 secondary schools are currently developing plans for modernisation—almost a third of the total secondary school estate.
