Funding/Grants

Hi All,

I have been asked to look in to possible funding or grants to help with various projects around the school. I don't suppose anyone knows where i could begin to look?

Re: Funding/Grants

Depends on the project.

Sport England can help with projects related to sport, sometimes play equipment.

CIF for getting the building up to standards.

SALIX for anything related to saving energy.

English Heritage can help with anything heritagy.

Re: Funding/Grants

Are you an academy? CIF is only for academies so may not be relevant.

Are there specific projects you're looking to tackle?

This is someting that I am interested in doing as well but I'm looking at getting a small area of playground resurfaced, just a tarmac floor at the moment but would love to brighten it up. Do you think sport England would help with just sufacing?

That might be possible but you would need a strong case for what the area would be used for in relation to sports activity for the children and other outside users.

Re: Funding/Grants

Sport England funded a 3G pitch for us, constructed in our field to give an all weather surface as an example. It was not cheap so the cash is there.
