Primary Awards Available and Deadlines

Primary Awards now OPEN

PLEASE NOTE: At present, we can only consider applications from Hertfordshire state-funded primary schools.

Primary Awards

  • Each School will be eligible to bid for up to £1000 per academic year. This could take the form of one bid for the full amount or be made up of several smaller bids across the academic year.
  • Awards must be linked to any/all of the following focus areas - STEM, PE, English, Other Foundation and Effective Learning/Outdoor Education.
  • Part-Funding:  We prefer to fund an entire project as our Minor Awards aim to make a big difference with a little help.  However,  we will consider slightly larger projects with a preference for our contribution to be 50% or more of the total cost.  If you are applying to us to fund part of a project, you must demonstrate that the additional funds are in place and committed to the project.
  • Primary Awards can be applied for at any time until each term's pot runs out.  The pot is then refilled at the beginning of the next term and applications reopen.  
    • A running total of the remaining award fund for the current term will be shown above the application form.


As we grow, we will also aim to help schools in other ways e.g:

  • competitions with school and pupil prizes.
  • building an easy-to-use database of other organisations that support our objectives and focus areas.
  • recruiting organisations and businesses to supply expert visitors to schools and facilitate pupil and teacher visits/placements.  Schools will then have access to these contacts.
  • Negotiating discounts from suppliers of educational services that fit our focus areas.

*As always, we don’t specifically endorse any organisation on our links pages but offer the information for teachers to evaluate the resources for themselves.
