Important

Our grants to schools are designed to enhance educational opportunities for those pupils from financially
disadvantaged Lambeth households (families in receipt of out-of-work benefits, on very low incomes or
without access to State benefits).

           Our grant aid to schools is targeted on pupils who are in financial need; you must therefore be clear
            who the intended beneficiaries are. We take entitlement to Free School Meals (whether or not this is
            taken up) - or being verifiably known to be slightly above the eligibility limit (e.g. in receipt of
            significant working tax credit) - as a proxy indicator of need.

           We cannot provide grants for the purchase of goods or services provided for by central or local
            government (or which could reasonably be met from the school's devolved budget).

We ask schools to ask themselves -

           What are the greatest barriers that specific pupils from the lowest income households face in
            achieving their full potential and

           How could a grant play a role in resolving those difficulties?
