The Strategic School Improvement Fund will open next month.

The £140 million Strategic School Improvement Fund is a grant to support primary, secondary, middle, all-through, alternative provision and special academies and maintained schools, and pupil referral units. It is intended to further build a school-led system, and aims to target resources at the schools most in need to improve school performance and pupil attainment; to help them use their resources most effectively, and to deliver more good school places.

To find out more about the fund, please visit the Strategic School Improvement Fund section of the DfE website which includes the SSIF application form.

 Guidance on how to complete an EEF application has been published by the EEF.
