A letting is defined as any use of school buildings or grounds by parties other than the school and its partners. This may be a community group, such as a local music group or football team, or a commercial organisation.

Letting school premises or sports facilities presents a valuable opportunity for schools to generate additional income for the funding of pupil activities and equipment purchases and to support their local communities.

However, the benefits need to be carefully balanced against any potential negative effects, such as the impact of increased traffic on the local community and the raising of commercial profiles in an educational environment.
