Lottery Money To Help With Plan For Secondary Education

We are delighted to announce that Sevenoaks ACE has received an award of nearly £6,000 from the Big Lottery fund to ensure that its survey on secondary education provision can reach the whole community and responses can be professionally and quickly analysed.

Letters have been sent to 100 local primary and secondary schools, nurseries and pre-schools asking for their support in distributing information about the survey to families in the Sevenoaks area.  A large number of these have responded to say they will help.  Additionally a leaflet will be included in July's Vine magazine giving people details of how they can complete the survey.

ACE intends to deliver information about the survey to each participating organisation with a prize for those organisations that achieve the highest response rates.

This is a huge project, and a true community consultation without a pre-determined outcome in mind.  Decisions on secondary education for the area are likely to be made quickly and we realise that we can’t rely on volunteers  to do the analysis in a short enough time.  To have secured this funding at a time when grant applications are highly competitive is recognition of the importance of what we set out to achieve.
