Application resources

NSN has created some resources that you will find useful when addressing difficult aspects of the DfE’s free school application criteria.

These resources set out presentational methods that have been effective for other groups when tackling the application. In most cases the resources are not a guide to everything you need to include in these sections, because they focus on meeting specific criteria, so for more comprehensive guidance on what should be included in each section please see our mainstream Free School Applicant’s Handbook.

Section D: Education plan

Section E: Evidence of need

Section F: Capacity and Capability
