Local Authority School Uniform Grants
We’re received this information from the Local Authority regarding School Uniform Grants and wanted to share it with you.
All contact needs to be with the LA directly and is quite independent of the school.
Parents/carers who are claiming benefits (but not child benefit as it is a universal grant) can apply to the Trust for a small grant to help (£30 per primary child, £50 per secondary school child with a maximum per family of £100). The application letter which is pretty self-explanatory is attached. At present the closing date for the uniform bursary is the end of August.
Parents will need to send in the application letter completed and a copy of a current benefits letter for the Trustees and Finance to approve. There has been a great deal of interest this year and the process is taking a long time to complete.
