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 the possibility of partial school reopening 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?

The report request process has been suspended temporarily. Reports which become due during this closure period will be requested once schools open again, probably in September. Please keep any report materials as you will be asked for a report in due course.
Should you already have your report materials together and wish to submit a report during this period simply email us at and you will be sent a secure report link. This is particularly important if you are moving jobs.
