The grant may be spent in the following ways:
- For the purposes of the school ie for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
- For the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools or academies
- On community facilities eg services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of pupils at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated.
