Helping schools through the Covid-19 crisis
The Government is offering additional funding to schools to support them in these very challenging times.
The funding will be available to all state-funded schools and will support costs relating to:
- Free school meals provision
- Keeping a school open in the holidays (for children of key workers)
- Additional cleaning throughout the school to prevent the further spread of the virus
Eddisons can assist with the deep cleaning element. This is particularly important when reopening school premises, since heating and ventilation
systems can harbour the Legionella pathogen.
The funding limits for schools are as follows:
251 to 500 pupils: £30,000
501 to 1000 pupils: £50,000
>1000 pupils: £75,000
Special schools and alternative provision
All schools: £50,000
The full guidance document is available here. This sets out the procedure for claiming the costs back and gives further details on how to apply.
Please contact us if we can be of assistance – and in the meantime, please do stay safe.
