This Government guidance sets out the financial support that is available for different types of education, early years and children’s social care providers in England. If you are not an education, early years and children’s social care provider in England, you should be able to get more information about the types of financial support available to you from other relevant government departments or devolved administrations.

The guidance details the Funding and Support for businesses and outlines which options should be used including sector specific guidance for:

  • Early years
  • Children’s social care providers
  • State-funded schools
  • Supply teachers and other contingent workers in state-funded schools
  • High needs funding
  • Residential special schools
  • Mainstream independent schools
  • Independent special schools
  • Further education and apprenticeships
  • Special post-16 institutions
  • Higher Education

The Guidance states that no organisation should profit from the exceptional financial support available and should therefore only access the support required. For example, organisations which continue to receive government funding should not furlough staff whose salaries that funding could typically be considered to fund, and therefore will not need to access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS).

All organisations are expected to have adequate and effective governance arrangements and controls in place to ensure public funding is spent effectively and appropriately.
