School fencing will be installed in several areas cross the UK after the government unveiled a new £2 billion construction programme.

Education secretary Michael Gove said that between 100 and 300 schools will be helped out over the next few years, with the first new institutions being opened in 2014.

The new programme will replace parts of the Building Schools for the Future policy, Mr Gove announced in the House of Commons today (July 19th).

Speaking to other ministers, Mr Gove said that the programme will be available to "all publicly funded schools".

"I am determined that criticisms of the previous model for private financing must be addressed, and I will only agree to projects when a series of rigorous value for money tests have been passed," he explained.

Meanwhile, a new sixth form college opened in Peterlee last month and will begin taking pupils and teaching them in September this year.
