Synopsis

Chair: Claire Jackson, Galliford Try

Lara Newman, Chief Executive of LocatED, will discuss a range of approaches to unlock funds from school sites to support additional capital investment in school buildings.

Often schools have buildings and land that are underutilised or not configured in the best way to meet the changing needs of education. LocatED, together with the Department for Education (DfE), is supporting school trusts and local authorities to explore how parts of the school estate can be creatively redeveloped to maximise investment in school buildings and, where possible, provide affordable housing – including for teachers.

Any assessment of surplus land will not include marked playing field land, which will continue to be protected.
