We are seeking views on the approach to prioritising schools for future places in the School Rebuilding Programme.

Why your views matter

The Prime Minister announced the School Rebuilding Programme (SRP) in June 2020 to carry out major rebuilding and refurbishment projects at schools and sixth form colleges in England over the next decade.

The goal of the programme is to identify and carry out projects at the schools most in need of major rebuilding or refurbishment.

We are consulting on the approach to prioritising schools for the future places in the programme. 

Before you respond to the consultation, please read the consultation document (below) for full details of the approaches under consideration.
