The Wandle English Hub offers financial support for up to 85 schools to buy resources/training. These resources will be match-funded by schools (with a cap of £3,000 per school).
However, if schools meet two of the following criteria the hub has the discretion to offer outright funding at a cap of £6,000 per school: :
- Phonics Screening Check score below the national average.
- Ofsted Requires Improvement or Inadequate
- Above average numbers of pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium
- The school is an Opportunity Area
Due to an unprecedented demand in schools seeking support, we are unfortunately at a position where our funding for this year is all now allocated. We would like to assure you that your school will be at the foremost of our mind regarding funding in 22/23 and to explain how this might work.
We understand that schools are looking to set up with SSPs this year and want to be clear about how we can support you now. As the process for funding is specifically towards validated SSPs and training, if your school were keen to get going and were to purchase training and funding, your funding could then be released for next financial year from September.
