Revenue spending on free schools
DfE pre- and post-opening spending costs for free schools.
Revenue expenditure by DfE on free school projects that opened or were withdrawn since 2011.
DfE gives free school trusts a project development grant to cover the costs of preparing to open a school (the pre-opening stage).
Post-opening funding allows schools to pay for essential costs, such as buying books and equipment, as schools increase their capacity.
Information about capital funding for free schools is also available.
