This funding will be allocated for the financial year 2021-22, to support the provision of high needs places needed by September 2022 and go towards refurbishing existing buildings or even building a new school from the ground up.

‘Councils will receive the funding to create new places in schools, academies, colleges and early years settings. The funding will improve existing provision to create modern, fit-for-purpose spaces suited to a wider range of pupil needs. This could be by contributing to the cost of creating a whole new special school, or by improving accessibility, such as installing ramps, handrails or ceiling hoists.’

“We welcome this announcement of extra High Needs funding to help support the work of local authorities in meeting the needs of children with a range of needs in schools. The funding allows more opportunities and projects to be fulfilled in an area of growing need for local authorities.” Graham Olway MBE, National Chairman of the Education Building Development Officers Group

Allocation of funds will be taken through the local authorities and schools hoping to receive a cash boost should look out for news on how to apply.

The Refurb Property Renovations team has extensive experience in the education sector, successfully completing projects to very high standards with Cuffley Outdoor Centre and Ardmore Language School to name two of our largest projects.

“Refurb Property Renovations have been working with us for the last 18 months transforming a dilapidated site into a modern Outdoor Activity Centre. The Cuffley programme of works has had many phases and varied project requirements, and Refurb have delivered every time; from handling the curveballs that we throw at them [asbestos removal], through to delivery of a fresh modern and practical site. The Refurb Team really understand our vision and have helped us achieve a remarkable centre.”

Because Refurb is a team of specialists in Property Renovations, Electrical Installation, Plastering and Painting & Decorating we are a single source of expertise.

We are also skilled project managers and will act as Principal Contractor, making collaboration between other specialists and trades on the project, a breeze.

Health and safety is of primary concern to our teams. Our Safe Contractor accreditation and £5m level of insurance means you can feel confident in all aspects of our delivery.
