All the schools in the borough are using the same rules . If you are eligible for Free School Meals – APPLY NOW. Save the letter they send you.
If you are entitled to Free School Meals then please get an application form from Mrs Yeaman. You will need to provide proof of getting Free School Meals (letter received) and complete an application form that will include your bank account (has to be the students).
Students can be added to the Bursary list at the start of every main term i.e September; January; April. Students that have a change of circumstance and are removed from the Free School Meals register will also be removed from the Bursary list.
In order for the Bursary to be paid students need to attend school for all sessions, if a student is genuinely ill they MUST phone in to the school sick line on the morning of absence AND every day that they are absent for. Students also need to be punctual to morning registration and all lessons.
The bursary is generally paid every 2 weeks but this can vary as is paid from a central source and not from JRCS.
Mrs Yeaman (Sixth Form Administrator) has all the forms now. Make sure you get what you are entitled to. If your forms come in late you may not get what you should have.
