Detail

In October 2009, responsibility for the management and delivery of all of the Department’s schools capital programmes, including the Voluntary Aided schools capital programme, transferred to Partnerships for Schools (PfS). PfS is a non-departmental public body and the Secretary of State for Education is accountable to Parliament for its activities and performance.

This guidance provides information relating to capital work at voluntary aided schools, together with details about how to apply for funding. Used in conjunction with information available on the DfE website, the guidance may be helpful to those involved in capital funding arrangements for premises-related work at VA schools.
