We are investing £5 billion over this Parliament to support local authorities in their duty to secure sufficient school places for their area.

This has already enabled local authorities to create 260,000 additional pupil places between May 2010 and May 2013, including 212,000 primary places, with more in the pipeline for September 2015.
