Dear Department for Education,

Please would you outline for me, any outstanding education grants and contracts that you are currently offering leadership development, mentoring or coaching.

If possible, would you also be able to provide any data from the last 5 years of grants or contracts that have been awarded and to which organisations.

Finally, (where possible) could you share with me - the total amount of money which your department allocated to each academy and multi-academy trust in England over the course of this academic year. If you could also provide last year's figures too, that would also be very helpful.

Yours faithfully,

Samantha Fernandez

Dear Ms Fernandez,

 

I am writing in response to you Freedom of Information request, received
on 28 June, in which you asked for details of:

·       any outstanding education grants and contracts that the DfE is
currently offering leadership development, mentoring or coaching;

·       any data from the last 5 years of grants or contracts that have
been awarded and to which organisations; and

·       the total amount of money which the DfE allocated to each academy
and multi-academy trust in England over the course of this academic year
and the last.

 

I would like to offer my apologies for the delay in responding. The
Department takes very seriously its obligations under the Freedom Of
Information Act, including the requirement to respond within the statutory
deadline of 20 working days. I am afraid that we have not been able to
maintain this standard in this instance and, while there are mitigating
circumstances, this delay is not acceptable and I am very sorry for the
inconvenience which it may have caused you.

 

To learn the amount of money allocated to academies and multi-academy
trusts in England over the last two academic years, please follow the
below links:

 

[1]2017/18 Schools Block Allocation

[2]2017/18 16 to 19 Allocations

 

[3]2016/17 Schools Block Allocations

[4]2016/17 16 to 19 Allocations

 

Regarding your query about the award of grants and contracts awarded over
the last five years, we are still checking our records in order to answer
this question as fully as we are able. In the meantime you will be able to
find much of the information you seek via the below links.

[6]DfE and Executive Agency spend

I hope that you find this information useful. I will get back to you as
soon as possible with any further information about grants and contracts I
am able to send.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Neil Mainprize
