What DfE funding is available, and how do I claim it?
Through its Teaching for Mastery Maths Textbook Subsidy, the Department for Education is providing funding to eligible schools to invest in maths mastery for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. 80% of the cost of approved resources is covered. But hurry – the submission deadline for the latest round of funding is 16 December!
If your school is eligible you will have been contacted by the DfE and asked to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). If you think you’ve missed on earlier funding rounds, get in touch with the DfE right away – there’s a good chance they will still be able to include you!
The EOI you send to the DfE needs to contain a resource cost estimate, and the DfE advises that you base your estimate on a quote obtained from an approved resource provider.
Can I buy Maths — No Problem! resources using this funding?
Yes. Maths — No Problem! resources have been approved by the DfE. In addition, Maths — No Problem! is offering a special discount on its school bundle price to eligible schools. So not only will the DfE cover 80% of the cost, but the price of our school bundle has additional discounts only available to eligible schools.
