Report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services.
Members received a report of the Director of Community and Children’s Services outlining a proposed model for allocation of the City Premium Grant from April 2022 onwards.
The Strategic Education and Skills Director outlined the model and how it would be divided into three separate funding streams: disadvantaged pupils grant, partnerships grant and strategic grant.
The Chair clarified that anything within the strategic grant division would be subject to high-quality data monitoring the need, and likely focus on social mobility. Should this be approved by the Board and Policy & Resources subsequently, the Education Unit would inform all schools of the change.
RESOLVED, that the Board approve:
· The proposed changes to the allocation, management and accountability of the City Schools Premium grants; and
· Moving to a more streamlined online system for project proposals, monitoring, evaluation and for tracking the impact of the projects funded.
