THIS GRANT SCHEME IS CLOSED BUT YOU CAN SUBMIT APPLICATIONS - HOWEVER THEY WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED UNTIL THE SCHEME REOPENS ON 1 APRIL 2017

PLEASE READ THESE GUIDELINES BEFORE COMPLETING OUR FORM.

We help with the cost for Lambeth-resident pupils from low income households so that they may participate fully in school trips:
  • Grants may not be used to reduce the costs of the trip for every child but instead should be used to subsidise the costs of those for whom cost is genuinely a barrier to participation.
  • The School should ensure through its own budget (or other sources) that no child eligible to participate will be left behind because of inability to pay.
  • We only accept applications for children Key Stage 2 and above (i.e. Early Years and Key Stage 1 classes are ineligible to apply).
  • The School should be certain that those children who have chosen not to participate in the educational field trip have opted out for reasons other than financial concerns.
  • The School should have a stated policy that it is the School’s expectation that all eligible children participate in educational field trips and that these trips form part of the broader curriculum.
  • Schools should have a system where children begin paying in instalments well in advance of the educational field trip taking place.
  • The costs of the trip should be reasonable.
  • Applications should be submitted at least 12 weeks before date of trip
  • We can only award a bursary of up to 50% of the actual cost a standard parent is paying.  The full bursary must be passed onto the Lambeth resident pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.
     
    EXAMPLE: A school is organising a 4 day trip that will cost the school £300 per pupil.  Through PTA fundraising, the school is able to subsidise the trip to ALL parents so that a full-paying parent only pays £250.  The Foundation can then contribute up to 50% of this cost as a bursary for children eligible for Pupil Premium.  In this example, the Foundation could contribute £125 towards the school trip, so that the Pupil Premium parent would only pay £125.

Please note, funding must be targeted at pupils on Free School Meals and low income families.
As part of our criteria:
  • The School should have a stated policy to ensure through its own budget (or other sources) that no child eligible to participate will be left behind because of inability to pay.
  • The School should be certain that those children who have chosen not to participate in the educational field trip have opted out for reasons other than financial ones.









Remember we look for assurance that no child is left behind for financial reasons
