Funds Allocated To School Refurbs Including For Windows

859 academies, sixth-form colleges and voluntary-aided schools will receive £456 million of funding to improve energy efficiency. Windows are included in the measures.

The announcement was made by the Department for Education (DoE) on 22 May as over 1,000 school building improvement projects got the green light as part of plans to boost the condition of the school estate.

The condition improvement funding will ensure that pupils can learn in safe, warm and energy efficient classrooms says the DoE.

Minister for the School System, Baroness Diana Barran MBE says: “Our Condition Improvement Fund has already completed over 11,000 projects, making a difference to pupils and teachers across the country. These projects help to create safer learning environments that make a difference to the quality of education for pupils.”

The department claims it has allocated over £15 billion since 2015 to support safe, well-maintained educational facilities.  



The announcement follows on from 239 new school buildings promised at the end of 2022 under the Schools Rebuilding Programme, with 400 out of 500 schools and sixth-form colleges now been selected for rebuilds through the 10-year programme.
