Schools, nurseries and other educational settings in the North of England can apply for funding to help raise the attainment for children from low income homes. The funding is available to try out new ideas to improve teaching and learning in schools and help the best ideas grow to scale. The funding aims to improve the school readiness of children during the reception year, with a priority focus on language and communication skills; supporting vulnerable children who may not meet age related expectations at primary school; and supporting high attaining students to build on their achievements at primary school and stay on a high attaining trajectory during the first few years at secondary school. The funding is being made available through the educational charity Shine and the deadlines for applications are usually around the end of January, the end of April and the end of October each year.
