The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund was introduced to provide financial support to help students overcome specific barriers to participation so they can remain in education.
A bursary is money that student, or St Julie’s as a school, can use to pay for things such as:
There are two types of 16 to 19 bursary:
1 - Vulnerable student bursary
A student could receive a bursary worth up to £1,200 if they (not their parent/carer) meet at least 1 of the following criteria:
2 - Discretionary bursary
If your son/daughter is eligible for Free School meals, they will qualify for the Discretionary Bursary of £100 per half term. If you have not applied for free school meals you are strongly recommended to make an application to your local authority. We are also able to offer these bursaries to students who have a household income of less than £25,000 per annum or who receive support under part six of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.
The award of £100 per half term is conditional upon:
All bursary payments will be made by Internet Banking payments into the student’s bank account. Details should be passed to the Finance Office along with the relevant evidence e.g. letter from Local Authority stating entitlement to free school meals and/or a P60 to0 show household income of less than £25,000 per annum. Payment will be made retrospectively once we have received the relevant evidence.
The school reserves the right to substitute the £100 award with things such as travel passes, free meals or books. Please contact school if you require further information. Additional details can be found by visiting https://www.gov.uk/1619-bursary-fund/overview
