DfE COVID-19 Costs Fund Scheme

The DfE has updated its guidance on the scheme to support schools and academies with additional / exceptional costs related to COVID-19 that have been incurred between March and July. The DfE has also opened the online process for submitting claims. Please see the links below or the DfE website.

Claims must be submitted by schools and academies (the Authority cannot do this on a maintained school's behalf) using this online process. The deadline for claims is 21 July 2020 and the DfE is clear that there will be no extensions.

The DfE does indicate that there will be a second window in autumn in which to submit claims for the remainder of the summer term. We encourage all schools and academies to review the guidance and to submit a claim where it is legitimate to do so.
