Funding for eligible schools for a range of school improvement activities.
The Strategic School Improvement Fund is now closed. There will be no further application rounds. We are currently reviewing arrangements for school improvement support and will announce details of future arrangements in due course.
The Strategic School Improvement Fund: emergency funding will remain open.
The Strategic School Improvement Fund was a grant to support:
- first schools
- infant schools
- primary schools
- secondary schools
- middle schools
- all-through, maintained nursery schools
- alternative provision and special academies and maintained schools
- post-16 academies
- pupil referral units
The fund targeted resources at the schools most in need to improve school performance and pupil attainment, to help them use their resources most effectively and to deliver more good school places.
The fund supported a broad range of school improvement activities including, but not limited to:
- teaching methods and approaches
- financial health and efficiency
The fund supported medium- to long-term sustainable activities across groups of schools with a preference towards support provided by schools, for schools.
Over £56 million has been awarded to a total of 171 projects. The projects are providing support to just over 3,100 individual schools of all types across the country. Find out which projects were successful.
