Priority School Building Programme
I was appointed NM at a school last year, the day after it was announced that BSF would cease for schools not at Financial Close.
Since then we have been allocated funds by the LA to refurbish, and now we have applied for funding under the Priority School Building Programme. This has ringfenced funding similar to the BSF one of £225 per pupil for 'ict infrastructure'.
My question is to anyone who has gone through BSF, how was your ICT infrastructure money spent. Was it done for you, or could you spend it? Also what was it expected to cover cables switches servers etc?
Finally were you consulted on where power and data was placed etc?
Any help appreciated.
