The local authority recognises that parents may not be able to meet all the costs involved in providing for their children’s needs at school. Consequently, if your child attends a school in the Borough and you are resident within the Borough, you may be entitled to various grants and other types of assistance. These are, depending on financial circumstances:

  1. Free school meals
  2. Free travel to and from school
  3. Assistance towards the cost of instrumental tuition

Further details, application forms and advice regarding the above forms of assistance are available from the Assistance to Pupils section, phone number available from the school office.
