Strategic School Improvement Fund (SSIF)

The £140 million Strategic School Improvement Fund is a grant to support first, infant, primary, secondary, middle, all-through, maintained nursery schools, alternative provision and special academies and maintained schools, post-16 academies, and pupil referral units. It is intended to further build a school-led system, and aims to target resources at the schools most in need to improve school performance and pupil attainment; to help them use their resources most effectively, and to deliver more good school places.

Applications for round 3 of the Strategic School Improvement Fund closed at midday on Friday 20 April 2018.

We would like to congratulate the 73 successful applicants from round 2, who will collectively run 75 projects to provide support to just over 1,370 schools of all types across the country.
