Schools eligible to apply for the funding (LA maintained schools graded as 'requires improvement' or at risk of a 'requires improvement' grade, or academies that secure the Regional Schools Commissioners support for an application) have until 12:00 noon

Bradford's Teaching Schools and NLEs will support eligible schools to prepare their application and submit it on their behalf. Funding can only be used for purchase support, e.g. Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) support, from another school that meets

Schools that wish to apply for the funding or have the capacity to support an eligible school are encouraged to contact one of the Teaching Schools as soon as possible. Their contact details are listed below:
