Religion: Education

Mr. Wallace: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how the £1 million spent by his Department on strengthening the teaching of (a) religious education and (b) identity and diversity has been allocated. [286118]

Ms Diana R. Johnson: The £1 million announced in January 2008 was to be spent specifically on the Religious Education Action Plan and not on the identity and diversity strand which falls within Citizenship Education. The money has been allocated as follows:

Item 2008-11 (£)

1. RE Partnership support

120,000

2. Updating and disseminating the existing guidance on RE

60,000

3. National programme of recruitment and training for local Standing Advisory Councils on RE

5. Continuing Professional Development Handbook for RE

6. Review of materials used in schools to teach world religions and their contribution to community cohesion

7. DCSF/REC Adviser

960,000


Schools

Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families (1) with reference to his Department's publication, Your child, your schools, our future, how many and what proportion of the case studies were assessed against a control group; [286883]

(2) if he will place in the Library a copy of the quantitative analysis of data used in each of the case studies. [286884]

Mr. Coaker: The case studies used in the recent White Paper-Your child, your schools, our future: building a 21st century schools system-are intended as individual examples of good practice from a range of partners and sources. They illustrate proposals within the document and support understanding through using real contexts. In using such cases, we did not consider it necessary to have a control group or to collect a full quantitative analysis of data.

Schools: Finance

Justine Greening: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what assessment he has made of the effect on (a) the renewal of the primary
15 July 2009 : Column 474W
school estate and modernising school infrastructure, (b) the number of secondary school classrooms adapted to improve personalised learning, (c) the number of schools receiving energy-saving measures, (d) the number of kitchens built in primary schools and (e) the number of rooms in primary schools converted for mother-and-baby groups and other community uses of the £800 million funding for priority schools capital programmes, brought forward from 2010-11 to 2009-10 and 2008-09; and how much of the funding has been spent in each month since it was announced. [286655]

Mr. Coaker: The fiscal stimulus initiative allowed local authorities and schools to bring forward some of their capital allocations from 2010-11 into 2009-10. The programmes affected are: Modernisation for schools; the Locally Co-ordinated Voluntarily Aided Programme (LCVAP); Primary Capital Programme; the Targeted Capital Fund for 14-19, special educational needs and disabilities; devolved formula capital which is paid directly to schools; and children's play areas. The final overall amount brought forward was £969 million. Information on how much of the overall allocations have been invested to date, and the impact of the investment, is held locally. The Department will be carrying out a survey later this year to determine whether or not the funds are on track to be invested during the 2009-10 spending period.

Mr. Gibb: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families with reference to paragraph 6.14, page 120, of Budget 2009, what information his Department holds on the priority schools capital programme; and what funding his Department has allocated to the programme in financial years (a) 2009-10 and (b) 2010-11. [286891]

Mr. Coaker: The fiscal stimulus initiative allowed local authorities and schools to bring forward some of their capital allocations from 2010-11 into 2009-10. This involved allocations in existing programmes announced in the comprehensive spending review 2007, but allowed for significant investment to be made earlier than had previously been anticipated. Priorities for investment on these programmes are decided and held locally. Overall, the final amount planned to be brought forward was £969 million. This can be broken down as follows:

Programme £m

Modernisation for schools

240

Locally Co-ordinated Voluntarily Aided Programme (LCVAP)

Primary Capital Programme

Targeted Capital Fund for 14 to 19, special educational needs and disabilities

Mark Hunter: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much funding has been allocated to each local authority through the dedicated schools grant in each year since its introduction. [286980]

Mr. Coaker: The following table shows the Dedicated Schools Grant allocations made to each local authority in each year since the grant began in 2006-07. Local
15 July 2009 : Column 475W
authorities with schools that have converted into academies may see a reduction in their allocation in the year of conversion. Academies receive their funding direct from the Department, not through local authorities.
