The Teachers Pension Employer  Contribution Grant (“TPECG”) Supplementary Grant application window is about to open, make sure you are ready to claim additional funding.

The first application window for the teachers’ pension employer contribution grant (TPECG) supplementary fund opened on Monday 2 December 2019.  This window is for mainstream schools and academies only, and to make a claim you will need to have registered for the DfE sign in service.

Academy Trusts will have used this service before but Local Authority Maintained Schools may not have, so make sure you have registered in plenty of time.

You will be entitled to additional funding if your TPECG allocation is 0.05% of your overall budget less than the pro-rated amount of your November teacher employer pension contributions.  This sounds confusing, but you can read more here, and the online form will be pre-populated with your school’s pension grant allocation and your overall budget.  However, for maintained nursery schools, you will need to enter your overall budget and obtain sign off from your Local Authority on this figure.

If you are eligible for the supplementary grant, you will receive the funding in March 2020.

Also, for Academy Trusts and non-diocesan Voluntary Aided schools, the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) application deadline closes at midday on Friday the 13th December, so make sure you have submitted your application before the portal closes.
