Government-Assisted Grants for School Students

The Welfare Grant is one of two government-assisted grants for school students focusing on providing pupils from low-income families with meals while they are at school. Depending on the school, this grant is either paid directly to the school or as part of a benefit received by the parent. The second scenario is not as common as the first, as local councils usually fund a child’s free school meal directly to the school.

Other government-assisted grants for school students focus on renewing important equipment, such as technological items and equipment related to gym or fitness classes. The government is currently running an initiative for schools to encourage children from nursery-age to high school-age to do more fitness-orientated activities. This includes indoor and outdoor gym equipment.

Grants for school students also include science-related equipment, with many high schools receiving new science labs and important equipment for chemistry and physics subjects. Perhaps the most important grants for schools provided by the government is the teaching grants, which allows schools in need of extra teaching staff to receive important resources. This also includes support staff for pupils who have special needs. These grants are a valuable asset to schools running on restricted funds and help ensure children with learning disabilities receive the best education possible.

Government-assisted grants for school students aim to improve not just individual schools but also the education system as a whole. Schools can find out which grants are available via the educational grants directory or by contacting their local authority who will inform them if they eligible and what they should do to apply.
