The DCSF funded the development of the Bowland maths materials and the Bowland Trust funded the production and distribution. The Bowland materials were completed in summer 2008 and distributed to all state schools by the National Strategies in the autumn 2008 term. The materials have now reached all state schools in England. Any school or college in England can either access the materials online or request copies of the five DVDs by completing an online form. Materials are also available for download free of charge for schools in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
