Foyle Foundation School Library Scheme

The School Library Programme provides funding to improve or establish school libraries.

The priority is given to primary schools up to Key Stage 2, but secondary schools that need books and reading resources for catch-up reading programs for Key Stage 3 pupils and/or transition reading programs for feeder/local primary schools will also be considered. The foundation can also consider applications from special schools for all SEN age groups.

Priority, and the majority of grants made, is for physical library/reading books; it will not fund textbooks or curriculum books.

Please note that competition for school library funding is intense. The decision period to approve a grant is currently 4 months.
