Mr Gove said the BSF scheme had been beset by red tape and delays

Plans to rebuild 36 schools across Kent have been stopped as part of the scaling back of Building Schools for the Future (BSF) scheme.

Education Secretary Michael Gove announced the changes to the (BSF) programme on Monday.

Some 180 schools in England have been rebuilt or revamped since the scheme was introduced by Labour in 2004.

Rebuilding plans at 36 schools in Kent have been halted and eight are up for discussion.

BSF was described at its launch as the largest and most ambitious scheme of its kind anywhere in the world.

On Monday, Mr Gove said it was too bureaucratic and did not provide value for money.
