Support is available in relation to revenue and capital works, site acquisitions & disposals, site transfers, academy conversion, and leasing property from or to third parties.

Voluntary Aided schools (VA)

Voluntary Aided Schools are operated by Governing Bodies, on sites held upon church educational trusts by church site trustees, with playing field land provided by the local authority. VA schools have greater autonomy (such as admissions, employment of staff and RE) than their Voluntary Controlled and community equivalents, and in recognition of this, VA school Governing Bodies retain responsibility for capital building works (which are normally funded at 90% level through DfE grant capital schemes).
