Opening School Facilities

Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire is delighted to announce a new funding award, targeted at Opening School Facilities.

The funding, which has been provided by the Department for Education and distributed by Sport England, will help schools deliver extra-curricular activities and open their facilities outside of the school day during evenings, weekends and school holidays. Please note, large scale capital/building works are not eligible items for this funding.

This new funding will help to support schools in opening their facilities in a Covid-secure manner and could include help to buy new equipment for sports and activities, as well as arranging additional cleaning and clear signage to help maintain social distancing.

This investment comes at an important time given the impact coronavirus has had on the activity levels of children and young people and the significant decline in the number of schools offering after-school clubs for pupils or opening their facilities for community use.
