Extending Schools Subsidy
The extended services disadvantage subsidy is part of the Government's commitment to the provision of extended services and will become available to all extended school clusters from April 2010. The funding is designed to help remove some of the barriers that economically disadvantaged children and young people face in accessing positive activities in or through schools. It is intended to support children aged 5 - 18 years old and could cover transport costs, equipment costs or the costs of tutors/coaches with the intended aims of improving pupils' well-being, helping to raise attainment and narrowing the attainment gap. In Blackburn with Darwen, two extended schools clusters have been piloting this subsidy initiative. These clusters have developed a model for how the subsidy will be rolled out across the Borough and the criteria which should be used when targeting children and young people. In addition, the Extending Schools team will be working intensively with your cluster co-ordinators to support the roll out and delivery of this project and information is being shared directly with head teachers through your regular cluster meetings.
