To agree to accept funding from the Health Alliance to accept £15,000 to fund a STEAM (Science , Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) Event for children in Year 6 to meet with businesses in the local area. The funding is primarily to transport the children to and from school and pay for materials at the event. The funding is from this year's NHS budget.
If the funding is not accepted it is unlikely that the planned event in July 2024 will be able to take place.
This decision has involved consultation and agreement by the Portfolio Holder, Partnerships (21 March 2024)


To accept funding (£15,000) from the North East Essex Health

Alternative options considered:

Option 1 - Not to accept funding would mean that the event would not have the budget in place to offer the opportunity for Year 6 pupils to have this experience with a wide variety of businesses that operate in Tendring.
Option 2 - To accept the funding would enable the planned event in July 2024 to take place.
