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:

Mainstream schools

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.
