Primary Focus Areas

  • Primary Awards must be for projects in one or more of the following focus areas:  STEM, PE, English, Other Foundation and Effective Learning/Outdoor Education.
  • We are equally pleased to receive applications for one specific area or for projects that will benefit a range of subjects.
  • Primary schools may make a number of different bids as long as the total amount bid for by the school does not exceed £1,000 over the academic year.
  • Applications for all focus areas are strengthened if they include an element of Effective Learning.  For us, this is basically learning to teach and learn in innovative and more effective ways. This could be any method or resource that helps your pupils learn and use any knowledge or skill more quickly, thoroughly, easily, enjoyably, deeply and/or permanently. This can be in any subject(s) but ideally, it would help learning across the school.  There is further information on Effective Learning here.
