star this property answer text <p>Published budgets represent our best estimate of how money will be spent this year. In-year changes to the delivery of construction programmes, including the free schools programme, do not impact on the overall budget for those programmes. Any change to those estimates is managed within the Department’s overall capital budget.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is investing £23 billion in the school estate in the current Spending Review period (2016-17 to 2020-21), including the free schools programme. There are 443 free schools open across the country. The Department is working with proposers to establish up to a further 263 free schools, and in the 2017 Budget, announced funding towards the cost of approving an additional 110 new schools.</p><p> </p><p>Details on 2018-19 capital budgets can be found in the Department’s ‘Supplementary Estimate’, available at: <a href="https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/Education/Estimates-Memoranda/doe-Supplementary-Estimate-17-19.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.parliament.uk/documents/commons-committees/Education/Estimates-Memoranda/doe-Supplementary-Estimate-17-19.pdf</a>.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to reforming alternative provision and published the plan ‘Creating opportunity for all: Our vision for alternative provision’ in March 2018. In August the projects funded by the Department’s £4 million alternative provision (AP) Innovation Fund began. The Department also commissioned external research into the AP market and AP practice which was published in October 2018. On 11 March 2019, the Department launched competitions for 2 new AP free schools, having assessed bids from local authorities who had worked in partnership with local schools in their area. The document ‘Creating opportunity for all’ can be found here: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713665/Creating_opportunity_for_all_-_AP_roadmap.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/713665/Creating_opportunity_for_all_-_AP_roadmap.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>As alternative provision is predominately funded through the high needs funding block of local authorities’ dedicated schools grant, the sector will benefit from my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State’s December announcement that an extra £250 million would be allocated for high needs funding. This was on top of the increases already promised, across the current and next financial year, bringing the total to £6.1 billion in 2018/19, and £6.3 billion in 2019/20.</p>
