star this property answer text <p>The 16 to 19 Bursary Fund supports the most financially disadvantaged 16- to 19-year-olds and those young people who most need help with the costs of staying in education. Schools, colleges and providers are allocated funding from which they can make discretionary awards to young people who are facing genuine financial barriers to participating in education.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In the annually updated guide published by the Education Funding Agency, institutions are advised that they should assess each student’s individual circumstances when deciding whether to award a discretionary bursary. The Government believes that institutions are best placed to decide which students face financial barriers to effective participation in education and institutions are free to determine the eligibility criteria they apply for discretionary bursary awards as well as the frequency and conditions of payments.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>If a student in financial difficulties believes that their personal circumstances have not been taken into account and as a result they are facing hardship, I would urge them to ask their institution to look again at their claim.</p><p> </p>

This can include providing support to children with special educational needs, whether or not they have a statement or Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan. The 0-25 SEND Code of Practice makes it clear that local authorities should work with parents and consider whether to provide support in the home to help the parents make suitable provision. Where an authority draws up a statement or EHC plan which ‘names’ home education as the right provision for the child then they must make any additional special educational provision set out by the statement or plan.</p>
