How much grant aid will I receive?
You can use the means test calculator to estimate the amount of grant you might receive. The current grant amounts and rates of dependent child allowance are available here.
When do I apply?
- If you have just received an offer of a school place you should apply to us within two weeks of accepting your offer. You should request the registration form link from the school.
- If your child is already in an SEC school, then you must register by 30 October. The link is available from the school.
- If you have previously applied to the SEC we will send you the link in October each year. You must reapply every year and ensure you register by 30 October. Late registrations cannot be accommodated.
My income has changed dramatically since the assessable year?
We recognise that from time to time major changes can occur between years. If you did not apply last year because you were ineligible and you would now be eligible, there is a chance we can consider a late application (before 31st May only). Where your income has been reduced dramatically, you can request a reassessment of your application (before 31st May only). To discuss this further please email email@example.com.
