Accelerator Funding

What is Accelerator Fund Support?

The DfE have agreed for Wensum English Hub to implement a new support pathway for English Hubs to consider for supporting schools in need for the academic year of 2023-24.

This new level of support is called “Accelerator Fund Support” and serves as the middle ground between the existing medium level support and resource funding offer and the intensive support partner schools receive.

Schools can apply for support and funding to implement a new validated SSP programme or training /resources in one which they already have in school.

Schools may be able to receive Literacy Specialist support days, with the level of support required being identified at audit.

The process to apply for funding/support is as follows:
