The Governments' online application system for condition improvement funds for eligible schools opened this year on 19 October 2023. Eligible schools in England, such as 6th form colleges, standalone academies, or a multi academy trust (MAT) with fewer than 5 schools or fewer than 3000 pupils can apply for the 2024-2025 fund.
The deadline for application is 12 noon, 14 December 2023.
Roofing projects consistently make up a large proportion of CIF bids. With the Department of Education “Condition of School Buildings Survey 2021 report" estimating some £15 billion of condition need related to roofs, that’s no surprise.
