    Schools minister Jim Knight said: "While this government is committed to rebuilding or refurbishing every secondary school, the Tories have pledged to slash our school building programme by £4.5bn.
    "This would mean cancelling one in seven future school building projects - a total of 360 schools. Instead of criticising the BSF programme Michael Gove should come clean about which schools would no longer be rebuilt if the Tories had their way."

    Where we are they've excelled the ICT provision by a few years to bring it dangerously close, but the build is still almost a decade away...

    With the way the government are going, chances are we'll get outsourced and the schools ICT provision will plummet to an all-time low and we STILL don't get the build. Government win-win, schools lose.

    The Tory threat to cut the BSF program funding will just mean those authorities that are dragging their heels with BSF at the moment will suddenly find new impetus & get their act together in case they lose funding

    On a slightly different note, according to the BBC the sponsor for an academy in Middlesborough is seeking to terminate their sponsorship.......

    BBC NEWS | Education | Academy sponsor seeks to withdraw

    I wonder what happens if no new sponsor is found? Does the school return to the 'fold' and become an LA school again?
