16 - 19 Bursary Policy

1. Aims

At Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form, we aim to

  •  have clear and transparent processes for the use and allocation of 16 to 19 bursary funds;

  •  make clear to parents, carers and students the type of support which is available and the means of applying for it;

  • widen access to, and participation in, post-16 education.

2. Guidance

This policy is based on advice from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) on the 16 to 19 bursary fund for the 2020 to 2021 academic year https://www.gov.uk/guidance/16-to-19-bursary-fund-guide-2020-to-2021-academic-year
This policy complies with our Funding Agreement and Articles of Association.

3. Definitions

‘In care’ is defined as: children looked after by a local authority on a voluntary basis (section 20 of the Children Act 1989) or under a care order (section 31 of the Children Act 1989). Section 22 of the Children Act 1989 defines the term ‘looked after child’

‘Care leaver’ is defined as:
