PRIMARY SCHOOL GRANT

Australian primary schools can apply for funding that includes a base amount determined by your whole school enrolment, plus an amount for your expected overall participant numbers. Special Circumstances funding is also available to assist schools with additional costs due to location or demographics.

To ensure equal access to primary school funding, from Term 3, 2018, Sporting Schools will implement an open competitive process. This means applications received by the close date are assessed against criteria and ranked in order of merit. Schools who have received the least number of grants over the past year will be prioritised (funding history). As a secondary ranking measure, schools who propose to engage a higher proportion of their school population will also be ranked higher.

To submit a Primary School funding application, you will need to:

  • Meet the eligibility requirements
  • Confirm the total number of students enrolled in P-6 at your school
  • Add your program details by listing each sport you intend to deliver, including the number of participating students and number of sessions.

Funding for primary school programs is calculated based on:

  • Funding period (school term)
  • School population
  • Total number of participants scheduled to participate in the Sporting Schools sessions
  • Any applicable special circumstances (such as regional and remote schools)
  • Funding amounts are usually between $1,000 and $3,100 per term.

SECONDARY SCHOOL GRANT

Australian secondary schools can apply for funding for Year 7 and 8 students that includes the costs of program delivery for the school, and access to additional support and tailored resources where it is needed most. 

The Secondary School grant uses an open competitive process. This means applications received by the close date are assessed against criteria and ranked in order of merit. Schools who meet the program goals and program parameters in their grant application may receive funding.

To submit a Secondary School funding application, you will need to:

  • Meet the eligibility requirements
  • Provide evidence of how your program activities relate to the program goals
  • Add your program details by listing each sport you intend to deliver, including the number of participating students and number of sessions.

Funding for secondary school programs is calculated based on:

  • Funding period (school term)
  • Alignment of your planned program to the program goals
  • Total number of participants scheduled to participate in the Sporting Schools sessions
  • Funding amounts are usually between $1,000 and $2,500 per term.
