Buildings

The Board assists church school governing bodies in maintaining, managing and improving their school buildings.

Our Finance and Development team administer the payments and recovery of grant aid for all building projects carried out at schools. We also administer schools' Devolved Formulae Capital (DFC) on behalf of the school governors.

As part of its responsibility under the Diocesan Boards of Education Measure 1991 (amended 2006), we provide advice and guidance to Church of England Voluntary Aided schools in relation to the design, specification and contract administration of building projects. We also administer an External Maintenance Scheme based on a pattern of voluntary parental giving, providing a fund for governors from which their 10% contribution is required for maintenance projects.
