For the 2021/22 financial year, Leicestershire local authority, which covers Charnwood constituency, received a School Condition Allocation (SCA) of £4,090,736 to spend on improving the condition of its maintained schools. As SCA is allocated to responsible bodies, not individual schools, we cannot provide a school or constituency level breakdown of this funding.

Large multi-academy trusts and voluntary-aided school bodies, such as dioceses, also receive SCA. These allocations can cover schools across multiple local authority boundaries, so are not included in the figure above. All SCA funding is published on GOV.UK.

Smaller multi-academy or stand-alone trusts, voluntary-aided schools not part of SCA eligible bodies, and sixth form colleges are instead able to bid to the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) each year. In the 2021-22 CIF round, there were six successful projects across four schools in Charnwood, totalling £1,110,079.52.

There were three projects included in the second phase of the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP2) in Charnwood Constituency. They are: Highcliffe Primary School and Community Centre, The Cedars Academy, and Bishop Ellis Catholic Voluntary Academy. All three projects began prior to the financial year 2021/22 and were handed over before the start of the financial year, with one school, The Cedars Academy, completing construction in the financial year 2021/22. These schools have benefitted from a combined total of £17,845,842 of funding.
