Healthy Pupils Capital Fund

7 November 2017

In case you’ve missed it, the Department for Education has given an update on the much-reduced Healthy Pupils Capital Fund.

You may recall that back in March, we reported that the Department for Education announced that a Healthy Pupils Capital Fund (HPCF) of £415 million, generated by the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, would be available to schools for projects to help pupils benefit from healthier, more active lifestyles. The fund was significantly reduced in July and now there is just £100 million available to schools.  

Department for Education has now indicated that HPCF will be distributed to schools through direct allocation alongside the School Condition Allocation via local authorities and multi-academy trusts (MATs) but single academies and small MATs and sixth form colleges need to apply.  Be quick! You will need to register your interest by 5pm on 30 November and submit an application by 12 noon on 14 December.
