Specialist schools property guide
The specialist schools property guide is used to calculate your property entitlement for specialist school related facilities. On each of the pages linked above, you'll find the formulas specific for each type of facility.
Each year we calculate the space deficiency at every school, regardless of the type of school, by comparing its entitlement with its actual space. We then prioritise schools to work out which have the greatest need within our available funding.
