Sounds-Write courses qualify for match funding from the Department for Education, whereby schools can reclaim 50% of the cost of our courses. For more details, see this page on the DfE’s site. All state-funded schools in England with Key Stage 1 and/or Key Stage 2 pupils, including Academies and Free Schools are eligible for this funding, which will provide a maximum contribution from the DfE of £3,000 per institution.
The current match-funding arrangement ends on 31st October 2013. Schools can claim match-funding for our courses from the current fund so long as the last day of the course is 31st October 2013 or earlier. Claims need to be submitted by 30th November 2013 – any later and they may not be paid.
