Education Support Fund for UK Schools with Service Children

Click on image to enlarge
Service Parents, both Regular and Reserve Forces, are encouraged to use the attached poster to bring the MOD Education Support Fund to the attention of their child’s school.  The Education Support Fund (ESF) is now inviting applications from UK publicly funded schools, Local Authorities, State schools, Academies, Free schools and 6th Form colleges that cater for the education of Service children. 

The fund is to help mitigate the effects that exceptional mobility and/or deployment of the Armed Forces communities have on schools and their children and will focus on the areas impacted by rebasing.  This might include providing support to Service children who have a parent serving on an operational deployment or help Service children who arrive in UK schools after the start of term to settle in. 

Only publicly funded UK schools and/or Local Authorities on behalf of schools may apply.

The bidding process for 2016 was launched by Directorate Children and Young People (DCYP) on 1 Jun 2015.
