Thank you all for your continuing hard work in providing online lesson materials and support for your pupils during this time, in addition to looking after children of other key workers and delivering physical resources to the most vulnerable families at home.

We understand that this continues to be a stressful time, especially with partial reopening of many schools in June and the logistical preparations for that and, of course, your concerns for your own family's health and that of the wider community.

We will endeavour, as always, to make the grant application process as smooth as possible. Do please help by reading our information and FAQs carefully, providing all the necessary details of resources you require and checking your spam/junk folders for misplaced acknowledgement emails from us.

I have submitted the school's BACS details already. Will my grant be paid?

Yes, grant awards which are currently in progress will be paid and the applicant will be notified as normal.

I have submitted an application and it has been approved. Will my grant be paid soon?

Yes, we are still processing new grant applications and, although the finance team is working from home, they will be paid as soon as possible. Please check junk/spam folders for crucial details around submitting BACS details.

Are you releasing NATRE codes?

Yes, once you have acknowledged receipt of the grant a code will be issued. Please activate it straight away.

It is 12 months since my school received a grant. Will I be asked for the required 12 month report?

Reports which become due during this partial closure period will be requested once schools begin to open again, in June/July. Please keep any report materials as you will be asked for a report in due course. Please let us know if you need an extension to September.
Should you have your report materials together and wish to submit a report promptly as you are moving jobs, simply email us at and you will be sent a secure report link.
