Opening School Facilities


In 2021, the Department for Education invested £10.1 million to help more schools open their facilities to the public as Coronavirus restrictions began to ease. The funding was aimed at helping schools to deliver extra-curricular activities and open their facilities outside of the school day during evenings, weekends and school holidays.

This investment came at an important time, given the impact coronavirus had on the activity levels of children and young people and the significant decline in the number of schools able to offer after-school clubs for pupils, or opening their facilities for community use.

Across the West of England

We were delighted that, as the local Active Partnership for the West of England, Wesport secured funds from this DfE pot and has been able to support a large number of schools across the County. Read our full report below to find out more:
