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.
