Primary School Award Application Form

In 3a) you give a general description of your project.  In 3b) you need to give the specific equipment/services etc that you require, their cost and their supplier.  Please note that all costings in 3b) should be ex. VAT as we do not pay VAT as schools claim this money back. If this is not the case with your school, please let us know on the application.  You don't have to describe the benefits the project will bring in question 3a) or 3b) - you do that in question 5 (although we read everything in every section so don't worry if you've put something in the wrong place - we'll take it into account).

  • Write about how the equipment/activity/visit/training etc. will help your pupils and any others you have mentioned in question 4 (e.g. local primary children, community groups etc.).
  • Will it help understanding, motivation, access to or interest in the subject?  If so, say how.
  • You might also explain if the pupils who will benefit have any particular need for the award e.g. to push and inspire the higher abilities who are coasting or help lower ability or disengaged pupils to close the gap etc.
  • e.g. 1  Having an expert in motivation and revision/learning techniques deliver an assembly and workshops to Y11 will invigorate the cohort in the build up to GCSEs and teach them (and possibly staff) some invaluable learning techniques.   In particular, the session on… will…
  • e.g.2  A class set of specialist, algebra-focused textbooks could improve pupil understanding and application as it has many worked examples, common mistakes and an extensive bank of past examination questions and answers.  The increase in attainment will be demonstrable in improved test results.
