Reporting on your School Grant

Key dates:

  • Check your budget: 1st March 2022
  • End-of-Year report due: 13thth May 2022

All schools who have contracted with WWGS and received their grant funding are required to report on the activities they undertook and where the money was spent.  Contact your Education Officer for ideas and support anytime.

There are three elements to reporting for your school grant:

  1. Narrative Report - Outlining the GCE activities you undertook and with whom.
  2. Financial Report - Detailing your expenditure/spend
  3. Self Assessment Tool - These are the WWGS evaluation forms/surveys and can be completed online or in hard-copy throughout the year. The online route should be a lot easier for schools!
