The department of education has written to education authorities warning them not to spend the£35m allocated for reforms to sixth form education on anything else, reports the Times Educational Supplement (p11).

The funding is intended to help schools broaden sixth-form studies and introduce new modular A-levels.

However, John Dunford, general secretary of the Secondary Heads Association, said: 'I have received worrying reports that some authorities are not identifying their share of the£35m and are not therefore increasing the funding of post-16 students to enable schools to introduce the reforms and broaden the curriculum.'
