We'll take their lottery money

I WAS interested to read your story on the reluctance of the Association of Christian Teachers to accept New Opportunities Fund for information and communication technology training (TES, February 18)

Perhaps we can arrange a swap with non-maintained and independent special schools which are all run by charities and are desperate to receive this resourcing.

Although pupils are placed in these volunary-run, non-profit-making schools by local authorities, and although their ICT provision is inspected just like any maintained school, this small group of schools is currently denied access not just to the NOF pot but also to Standards Fund.
