The DfE has just launched a new grant aimed at supporting trusts in improving schools. In order to qualify, trusts must plan to do one of the following within the next 12 months:

  • take into your trust and improve at least two additional schools

  • form a new MAT of two schools or more and improve them

Awards are likely to be between £50,000 and £100,000. You need to apply by 26 November 2017. The RSCs will prioritise applications from trusts carrying out activity in the areas listed on the link above.
