Regional School Commissioners work to support academy trusts within their regions and, where appropriate, encourage academies and trusts to apply for funding to support school improvement, such as The Multi-academy trust Development and Improvement Fund.</p><p>Where a school wishes to leave a trust of which it is already a part of, this is possible with the consent of my right hon.

Schools and those responsible for school buildings receive condition funding through different routes depending on their size and type.</p><p>Local authorities and larger multi-academy trusts (MATs) receive a school condition allocation to invest in condition priorities across their schools.

Smaller and stand-alone academy trusts instead apply for capital funding to the Condition Improvement Fund. All schools also receive an allocation of devolved formula capital to invest in smaller capital projects to meet their own priorities.</p><p>The department keeps condition funding policy under review and plans to publish the methodology for school condition allocations for the 2020-21 financial year in autumn 2019. The eligibility for school condition allocations in 2020-21 will remain consistent with previous years.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Local authorities are required to provide schools with sufficient funds to enable mainstream schools to meet the additional cost of pupils with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities, up to the value of £6,000. This funding comes from the schools block of the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG). While authorities will identify a notional SEN budget for each school within the school’s overall budget, that notional budget is not ring-fenced, and schools are expected to manage their overall budget to best meet the need of all their pupils, including pupils with SEN.</p><p>When the costs of additional support required for a pupil with SEN exceed £6,000, the local authority should also allocate additional top-up funding to cover the excess costs. This top-up funding, and all funding for special schools comes from the local authority’s high needs budget. In December 2018, we announced an additional £250 million in high needs funding across the current financial year and the next, bringing Walsall’s total high needs funding to £31.5 million in 2018-19.</p><p>In 2013, the schools and high needs budgets within the DSG were created. As the DSG includes other budgets such as the early years budget, the department is unable to provide comparable figures before 2013-14.</p><p> </p><p>The schools and high needs allocations for Solihull since 2013-14 are as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Year</p></td><td><p>Schools</p></td><td><p>High Needs</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£181.5 million</p></td><td><p>£27.3 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014-15</p></td><td><p>£183.4 million</p></td><td><p>£28.3 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>£191.0 million</p></td><td><p>£28.4 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016-17</p></td><td><p>£195.0 million</p></td><td><p>£28.8 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017-18</p></td><td><p>£199.5 million</p></td><td><p>£29.9 million</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018-19</p></td><td><p>£204.8 million</p></td><td><p>£31.5 million</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p>
