MOD Education Support Fund Opens to Applications

Children may have to change school when a service parent is posted or the school may support a pupil when a parent is absent for long periods of time. This fund is available to support schools in embedding practices that can benefit the service children and their school.

It is also different to the Service Pupil Premium, which is provided to schools in England by the Department for Education in respect of children of serving members of the armed forces.

Eligible applicants:

  • Maintained Schools
  • Academies
  • Free School
  • 6th form colleges
  • Groups of any schools described above (referred to as ‘Cluster bids’ - these are strongly encouraged)
  • Local authorities on behalf of the publicly funded schools in their area.

If applying as a cluster an individual school can also submit their own separate bid, provided it is for a different initiative.

Schools must be subject to either significant mobility of Service children or have Service children whose parents are subject to deployments.

The maximum amount of funding an applicant can request is not stipulated.

The deadline for applications is 30 September 2022.
