16 to 19 Bursary Fund

The school receives a limited allocation which is managed in accordance with guidelines laid down by the Education Funding Agency. 

This policy is based on the recommended Local Authority Model Policy with some adaptions made specifically for a Complex Needs School.

To be eligible, students must be aged between 16 and 19.

To be eligible, students must be aged between 16 and 19.

Pupils who become 16 during their time in year 11 will not be eligible for the 16-19 Bursary until they begin year 12 in school.  Pupils must be under 19 on 31 August in the academic year they start their programme of study.  Where a student turns 19 during their programme of study, support will continue until the end of the academic year they turn 19 or the end of the programme of study, whichever is sooner.

The school will use the fund to support the most vulnerable young people to participate in and benefit from post-16 education and training, and will look to raise awareness of the fund wherever possible.

The school will approve applications from young people in care, care leavers, young people in receipt of income support and disabled young people in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA) or the new Personal Independence payments) who are also in receipt of Employment Support Allowance (ESA).
