Funding opportunity for primary schools and early years settings from the Laurel Trust
31 May
The Laurel Trust is a charity that is currently seeking bids from groups of schools that wish to carry out innovative projects benefiting disadvantaged pupils. The Trust intends to create strategic partnerships with schools to secure improvement in the quality of teaching, learning and leadership thereby widening opportunity and reducing disadvantage. It wishes to do so through action-led school-based research, innovation and evidence-based developments which focus on securing equity and closing the gap. The Laurel Trust is currently inviting grant applications for funding from collaborations of primary schools, early years settings and special education provision in areas of multiple deprivation and disadvantage. Projects need to be focused explicitly on meeting the needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable learners. Last year the smallest group of schools that was funded was two and the largest was fifteen, with grants ranging from five thousand pounds to fifty thousand pounds. The latest round of applications for funding is currently open. Applications can be made online and must be received by 5pm on 24th June 2019. Schools will be notified of the result of their application in the week commencing 15th July. Details of how to apply can be found on their website: https://laureltrust.org.uk
