To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what steps she is taking to ensure that Bradford has enough school places.
19 January 2015
Local authorities are responsible for planning and securing sufficient school places in their area. We have committed £5 billion between 2011 and 2015 to help local authorities to create new school places, and an additional £2.35 billion up to 2017. Bradford has been allocated £88million in Basic Need funding for 2011 to 2017, in addition to centrally funded places through the Free Schools programme.
