I am looking for any information and feedback on sponsored SCP sites and alternative funding streams anyone has tried, i.e schools, neighbourhood boards etc.

SCP Funding

Cambridgeshire had one sponsored SCP site which was paid for via advertising the sponsoring company on the back of the uniform. However after one year its looking highly likely that the company concerned will cease the sponsorship so its not been a great experience from my point of view. The key is to tie a sponsor into a long term service level agreement requiring funding 12 months in advance.
With regard to other funding streams the Education Finance Act clearly states that schools cannot directly use their budget to fund SCP's. A possible work around could be for the school to transfer funds to the PTA however I am not aware of anybody trying this yet.

Drop me an email and I can send you our guidance for third party funding and any other relevant paperwork.

SCP funding

Two sites funded by outside bodies.
One, a private school until the redesigned junction is put in which will have ped crossing facilities (roughly 18 months in post then it will go) and the other paid for by major contractor on site next to school. This is a new crossing which will also go when the work is done. Contractor recruited equipped and pays salaries plus our training costs.(they have had 6o plus muck trucks daily past the school entrance and now the construction begins there are more deliveries of concrete, reinforcing bars etc.)
