The Girls’ Learning Trust (the ‘Trust’), together with the Local Governing Body of Carshalton High School for Girls (CHSG) (the ‘School’) is committed to ensuring that support is available to parents/carers and students on low incomes and/or in receipt of benefits.
The School aims to provide additional support for those students in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) through the 11-16 Uniform Bursary. This is offered at the School’s discretion and is funded using Pupil Premium funding.
Whilst the 11-16 Uniform Bursary is primarily aimed at students in receipt of FSM, students should also be able to fulfil the following criteria:
- The student’s level of unauthorised and unexplained absence from lessons in the previous year must be no greater than 5% (not applicable to students in Year 7). The school reserves the right to withdraw funding if attendance falls below 95%;
- Prolonged absence must be supported by medical evidence (if attendance falls below 95%);
- The student must keep up-to-date with all work commitments.
The Trust and Local Governing Body recognise that not every eventuality can be covered in this procedure. Therefore, in exceptional circumstances, parents/carers may apply in writing to the Headteacher for a discretionary bursary, outlining the specific circumstances with supporting documentation. A decision will be taken by the Headteacher and Bursary Panel, at the sole discretion of the school and dependent on funds being available.
