Funding to Enhance Pupil Attainment
The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has announced that it is seeking applications from schools, charities, local authorities, universities, colleges and social enterprises, etc for projects that address educational disadvantage. In particular, the Foundation is seeking to support projects that:
- Focus on the use of digital technology to improve educational attainment
- That can be replicated in schools across England
As part of the EEF’s grant funding agreement with the Department for Education they are required to target their funds for the first two years at children entitled to free school meals attending those schools which are not meeting the Government’s floor targets for attainment and progression. The Foundations would typically expect their smallest grant to be in the order of £50,000 a year and to reach at least 100 students. There is no maximum grant limit.
The next application deadline is 5pm on the 1st October 2014. Read more at: http://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/apply-for-funding/
