The first window for schools to claim funding back for exceptional costs due to COVID-19 closed on 21 July. The following payments against claims within the published scope of the fund have been arranged for schools in the named areas for those costs incurred between March to July 2020:
Paid in September 2020
To be paid in November 2020
Schools also made claims for costs outside of the published scope of the fund and an assessment is currently being undertaken to determine which of these other costs can be reimbursed. We expect to write to schools in November to confirm the outcome of that assessment.
