More information about SSIF & How to apply for funding
The primary purpose of the SSIF is to help build a school-led system, with the aim of targeting resources at those schools most in need of improvement in terms of their performance and pupil attainment. The money is intended to support a wide range of school improvement activities, including literacy interventions such as Renaissance Star Reading and Renaissance Accelerated Reader.
