The CSDC secured and reviewed information on the use of the Education and Skills Funding Agency’s (ESFA’s) capital funding for schools. Specifically, this was investment made in the education estate using the School Condition Allocation (SCA).
The CSDC identified the nature of works delivered by certain responsible bodies (local authorities (LAs) and multi-academy trusts (MATs)). The CSDC has confirmed that SCA funding is being used for its intended purpose.
