The Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) replaces the Academies Capital Maintenance Fund (ACMF) for Academies, and the Building Condition Improvement Fund (BCIF), for Sixth Form Colleges.
The target date for notifying successful projects is the 20th March.
A priority of the fund is to support eligible academies and colleges to expand their existing facilities and/or floor space to either:
- Increase the number of admissions in the main year of entry of Ofsted Good or Outstanding academies and colleges;
- Address overcrowding, including cases of recently approved age-range expansions and sixth form expansions; or
- Address a lack of, or the suitability of, key specialist facilities such as kitchen and dining facilities, science laboratories or sports hall.
With the release of the fund just around the corner, Fordingbridge would like to notify anyone who is in consideration for the fund that we offer a free, no obligation site survey for schools to discuss concepts and ideas.
Fordingbridge has extensive experience of working with all types of education establishments. We have designed and built internal and external dining facilities, multi-use games areas and sustainable buildings.
