It has always been our practice to offer assistance and guidance to help support our families to ensure our students are fully equipped and prepared for the new school year. With this in mind we may be able to help families with the purchase school uniform, through our uniform supplier, equipment, travel costs or help with the cost of school trips where there is a genuine financial need. This includes, for example:
• families where children are eligible for free school meals
• parents on a low income
• families who are in receipt of benefits
• other individual circumstances where there is an obvious need for assistance.
Entitlement to assistance is not automatic; each claim is treated on its merits, and is entirely at the school’s discretion.
• For students in years 7 – 11 Parents / carers should complete the Financial Assistance application form
• For students in the sixth form please complete the Sixth Form Bursary application form
All forms and supporting documentation should be handed in to Waynflete reception. All applications will be dealt with in confidence and supporting documentation returned / copied as required.
Free School Meals
For information and to see whether you are eligible to claim free school meals for their child/ren can get more information from the NCC website. Free School Meals. There is also the opportunity to apply online. Parents of eligible students should still register for cashless catering (as per the instructions already given) but do not need to credit their account with any money. The account will be credited by the school with the sum of £2.20 per day, although parents may supplement this with additional credit if they wish. Any queries regarding cashless catering should be directed to Mrs E Wade on 01280 846305 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
