DfE School Nurseries Capital Funding

In September 2018, the Department for Education (DfE) announced a capital bidding round of £30 million to support new high-quality school-based nursery places for disadvantaged 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
Bids can be submitted for: -

  • New build nurseries (including modular/temporary buildings).
  • Extensions, refurbishments or conversions of surplus school capacity, or existing buildings including creating kitchen facilities.
  • Information and communication technology (ICT) hardware or software.
  • Fixtures, fittings and equipment (FF&E).
  • ICT infrastructure (cabling, wireless and switching) are eligible if they form part of a new build project.

Applications are encouraged from schools with a track record with OFSTED, and at least 20% of pupils eligible for free school meals.
