The UK Government’s Department for Education recently announced almost half a billion pounds (£483 million, to be precise) is to be set towards improving school facilities across England, as part of its Condition Improvement Fund (CIF). School-age children have been amongst the worst-affected by the Coronavirus, and this announcement from the Government comes as part of its pledge to ‘build back better’ following the pandemic.

CIF funding can prove immeasurably helpful to academies, offering them the chance to carry out structural repairs, safeguarding and health and safety work. This funding can also be used, in certain circumstances, for expansion work. Unfortunately, it’s an increasingly competitive Government money-pot. One with an increasing number of schools wanting a piece of the pie, so to speak. Fortunately, however, Munday + Cramer are experts at securing CIF funding!

Munday + Cramer has the great pleasure of announcing that they’ve successfully secured around £20 million in funding from this year’s Condition Improvement Fund. This comprises £9.8 million for Essex-based academies, £5.3 million across Buckinghamshire schools and £2.3 million across the county of Kent. Munday + Cramer also successfully secured bid applications in London and Bedfordshire, as well. The funding that we’ve secured will be making its […]
