    How do I complete my acquittal?


     Use the online Sporting Schools Grant Acquittal form to provide details on:

    • how you spent Sporting Schools funding (including receipts);
    • any unspent (residual) funds; and
    • the number of participants, including total and by demographic.


    Before you complete your acquittal 

    • Review the Program Parameters and Terms and Conditions to ensure your school has spent the funding on supported costs.
    • Ensure your school’s nominated contact (Sporting Schools Coordinator, Finance Contact or Principal) completing the acquittal has all necessary information prior to accessing the form. 

      NOTE: Acquittals need to be completed and submitted in one session as the form cannot be saved.


    STEP 1 – Access the Acquittal Form 

    Acquittals can only be completed online through your school’s profile as each acquittal is pre-populated with details related to your Sporting Schools program and funding. 

    A registered school contact (Sporting Schools Coordinator, Principal, or Finance Contact) can:

    • Open a web browser and navigate to
    • Login using their Sporting Schools username (email address) and password;
    • Click on the ‘Manage Grants’ tab and scroll to ‘Grant Application Acquittals’;
    • If your school is eligible to acquit a term, select ‘Start Acquittal’ 


    STEP 2 – Program Participation 

    • Select whether you delivered at least one sport during the term (Yes or No), then click 'Next'.

      NOTE: If you did not deliver (‘No’), select a ‘Non-Delivery Reason’ from the drop down list and add a comment. You will then be directed to the Summary page as there are no program expenses to acquit. 


    STEP 3 – Funding Details 

    • Review pre-populated Grant Details, Program(s) Nominated in Grant Application and Confirmed Sport Packaged Bookings
    • Enter Participant Totals in the Sporting Schools program during the acquittal period for:

    • Click ‘Next’.


    STEP 4 – Program Expenses

    • Review Program Expenses pre-populated from the Booking System, if necessary, click ‘Edit’ to change the amount for a pre-populated item.

      NOTE: You cannot change any other detail or delete a program. Enter '0' (zero) as the amount for any listed program that did not run.
    • Enter your program expenses by sport
    • Click ‘Add Expense Item’ to enter your program expenses
    • Repeat until you have entered all expenses for the term
    • Click ‘Add Receipt’ to upload copies of receipts or other evidence of expenditure supporting the expense items entered.

      NOTE: You can attach multiple files if required. Individual files cannot exceed 5MB in size and should be saved in one of the following supported formats: PDF, JPG, JPEG, PNG, BMP, GIF. Attaching at least one file is mandatory.
    • Click ‘Next’ 


    STEP 5 – Summary

    • Review the School Details, Financial Declaration and declaration statements
    • Tick to confirm the information provided in your acquittal is correct and your acceptance of the declaration statements
    • Sumbit your acquittal

      NOTE: When your acquittal is successfully submitted you will receive a confirmation email which outlines your acquittal details. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact Sporting Schools on 1300 785 707 or
