Allocation is only regarding the scheme's Discretionary Bursary/Free Meals. Once eligible young people are identified, SCL Group must apply for the Vulnerable Young People Bursary element via a Funding Claim form to the SBSS. The Student Bursary Support Service, part of the ESFA, will then issue funding directly to the SCL Group. Secure records will be kept of all awards, receipts, and payments for audit purposes for a period of 8 years in accordance with statutory financial regulations and ESFA retention requirements. An annual report on the number of awards made and the total value will be provided by the Head of Finance to the Bursary Committee.


The use and allocation of Bursary funds are governed by the Bursary Committee which meet once a month. Amendments and changes deemed necessary to meet the needs of the learners are discussed and agreed. This policy was amended by the Bursary Committee in August 2023 and is subject to an annual review.
