THE county coun­cil has pub­lished a list of how much each Der­byshire school has been given for mi­nor re­pairs. The fund­ing to­tals £2.14 mil­lion for 2018-2019.

Der­byshire County Coun­cil can ask that schools use some of this fund­ing for ma­jor projects, such as new class­rooms. It also ex­pects acad­e­mies to con­trib­ute to­wards im­prove­ment projects.

The au­thor­ity is given the money, called a De­volved For­mula Cap­i­tal grant, from cen­tral govern­ment. The amount the coun­cil then hands to schools is based on the num­ber of pupils each had at the start of the pre­vi­ous year.

Each school is given a fixed amount of £4,000, with an ex­tra £11.25 per pri­mary pupil, £16.88 per sec­ondary student and £33.75 per pupil with special needs.

Vol­un­tary-as­sisted schools are given a fixed rate of £4,300, with an ex­tra £12.15 per pri­mary pupil, £18.23 per sec­ondary student and £36.45 for ev­ery child with special ed­u­ca­tional needs.

A re­port on the fund­ing states: “The De­part­ment for Education views De­volved For­mula Cap­i­tal as a means of ad­dress­ing the backlog of prob­lems that still ex­ists in schools.” All mi­nor re­pair schemes are mon­i­tored by the coun­cil and its of­fi­cers lend ad­vice to en­sure the money is spent well.

On av­er­age nurs­ery schools tend to re­ceive around £4,500 each year for mi­nor re­pair work. Mean­while, the av­er­age amount pri­mary schools re­ceive varies quite widely with an av­er­age stretch­ing from a low £5,000 to a mid £6,000.

Se­con­daries also vary widely due to the rel­a­tive size of each school, with an av­er­age of around £18,000, with special schools and sup­port cen­tres re­ceiv­ing an av­er­age of £6,700.
