16-19 Tuition Funding
The 16-19 Tuition Funding is designed to help support young people who face financial barriers to continuing in education and training after the age of 16. It is to be used to support the costs of transport, books and equipment.
The payment can be claimed by pupils identifying educational resources/support that they require and then completing a Clarendon Academy purchase order. This must be verified by Mrs Maidment and the school will then place the order.
To receive a bursary, the young person must be over 16 on 1st September and under 19 on 31st August in the academic year in which they start their programme of study.
There are two types of award from the Bursary Fund:
1. Guaranteed Bursary
This group covers young people who are looked after by the Local Authority (In Care), care leavers, and those in receipt of Income Support and disabled young people in receipt of both Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance. The award for this group of young people is up to £1,200 per academic year.
2. Discretionary Bursary
A Bursary of up to £800 per academic year will be awarded to young people in receipt of free school meals.
Additional Discretionary Bursaries
A Bursary of up to £300 per academic year will be awarded to young people whose parents are in receipt of working/child tax credits.
