The Condition Improvement Funding
The Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) is an annual bidding round for eligible academies to apply for capital funding. The priority for the fund is to address significant condition need, keeping education provider buildings safe and in good working order. This includes funding projects to address health and safety issues, building compliance and poor building condition.
During the last round of bids, we were successful in gaining funding for a new Fire Alarm System, a new Emergency Lighting System and roof repairs which is fantastic. We had a new Fire Alarm System and a new Emergency Lighting System installed during the summer holiday and after the October half term holiday we are having the school roof repaired. During the October break the contractors will be on the school site putting up the scaffolding ready to start the roof repairs in Term 2. The roofers will base themselves in the area outside Pre-School and the Children’s Centre and as all of their work is up on the roof there will be minimal disruption to the school day. However, please take care when moving around school whilst this work is being undertaken as walkways may be narrower in places due to the scaffolding.
