star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the issue of asbestos in schools very seriously and is supporting those in schools and responsible bodies who have the legal responsibility for safely managing asbestos in their schools.</p><p>The Department provides funding to schools to help them keep their school buildings in a good state of repair. Between 2015 and 2018 this investment will total £4.2 billion and schools and responsible bodies are able to use this funding to remove asbestos where that is appropriate.</p><p>For maintained schools, the local authority as responsible body receives an annual allocation of capital funding to repair and upgrade existing buildings. Local authorities are expected to treat fairly those schools considering conversion to an academy and to honour any commitments of capital funding that they have made, in respect of building projects at those schools.</p><p>Following conversion, a school can be part of a larger multi-academy trust, a smaller multi-academy trust or a standalone academy. Larger multi-academy trusts (MATs) have access to annual formulaic school condition allocations (SCA), which they can pass on to their constituent schools to address any serious asbestos concerns. For stand-alone academies and academies in smaller multi academy trusts, funding is available through the condition improvement fund (CIF) where they bid for capital funding. As set out in the guidance for prospective bidders, the highest priority is given to health and safety issues due to the poor condition of buildings, including emergency asbestos removal.</p>

Authorities will need to take account of the recommendations arising from each area review and the impact on transport for learners.

star this property answer text <p>Funding for children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) is allocated to local authorities through the dedicated schools grant, which includes both funding to be delegated to mainstream schools, and funding for the additional costs associated with educating children and young people with high needs.</p><p>Schools are funded through a formula set by their local authority, and local authorities are required to delegate funds to a level that enables schools to meet the additional cost of pupils with SEN up to £6,000 per annum. It is for individual schools to decide how they allocate their overall budget to ensure they meet the specific needs of children with learning difficulties.</p><p>For those pupils whose additional support costs more than £6,000 the local authority pays top-up funding to the schools from their high needs budget. Top-up funding rates are for local authorities to agree with their schools.</p><p>The high needs allocation, within the dedicated schools grant, for the Greater Manchester local authorities in each of the last three years were as set out below:</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>2013-14 (£million)</p></td><td><p>2014-15 (£million)</p></td><td><p>2015-16 (£million)</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bolton</p></td><td><p>25.83</p></td><td><p>27.15</p></td><td><p>27.55</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bury</p></td><td><p>22.50</p></td><td><p>24.08</p></td><td><p>24.17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Manchester</p></td><td><p>59.83</p></td><td><p>63.34</p></td><td><p>64.07</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Oldham</p></td><td><p>23.54</p></td><td><p>24.90</p></td><td><p>25.58</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Salford</p></td><td><p>22.10</p></td><td><p>22.75</p></td><td><p>22.82</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Stockport</p></td><td><p>27.62</p></td><td><p>29.04</p></td><td><p>29.44</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Tameside</p></td><td><p>25.82</p></td><td><p>27.14</p></td><td><p>28.23</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Trafford</p></td><td><p>13.81</p></td><td><p>14.79</p></td><td><p>14.73</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Wigan</p></td><td><p>22.88</p></td><td><p>23.34</p></td><td><p>24.08</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>We do not hold information on the total funding for supporting children with learning difficulties allocated to schools in the Manchester, Withington constituency or in the Greater Manchester area.</p>
