Discounts

SIBLING DISCOUNT

There is a 5% discount for the second pupil, 10% discount for the third child and a 15% discount for the fourth or subsequent pupil from the same family attending Chafyn Grove School concurrently.

MILITARY DISCOUNT

We offer a 10% discount for military day pupils, and a 15% discount for military weekly and full boarding children. Where there is eligibility for the Continuity of Education Allowance, we set our boarding fees according to the threshold determined by the MOD in the interests of offering the most effective discount. Whilst this is currently equivalent to the levels listed above, please contact the bursar for full details. Our bursar is experienced in offering advice on CEA applications and happy to answer any questions the process poses.

APPLICATIONS

Sibling discounts are applied automatically. There is no need to make a separate application. Military discounts are applied on application as well, though those involving CEA funding will usually require confirmation before a place can be offered.

LENGTH OF AWARD

Discounts continue for as long as the child remains at Chafyn Grove School and the discount conditions apply.

BURSARIES AND VOUCHERS

Bursaries

The Governors of Chafyn Grove School are committed to broadening access to the school by offering to eligible families means-tested financial support. Such a discount is known as a Bursary. To apply for a bursary, please mention that you would like information as part of your application. The bursary procedure is separate to the standard admissions procedure and in no way changes that process. All awards are subject to annual review and significant bursaries will involve an assessment from an external company, BAL Ltd. For further details on any aspect of this process, please contact our Bursar, Mrs Davies (01722 420894/ bursar@chafyngrove.co.uk)

SCHOLARSHIPS

While Chafyn Grove is justifiably proud of the scholarship success its pupils enjoy to Senior schools, we do not offer scholarships ourselves. The principal reason for this is to devote funds instead to means-tested bursaries, rather than talent-tested scholarships where financial support may not be needed. We have a record of developing such talents which is exemplary, and are confident that this is the correct recompense for such a situation.

CHILDCARE VOUCHERS

Since April 2005 employers have been able to provide Child Care Vouchers (CCVs) up to a value of £55 per week or £243 per month, free from tax and national insurance contributions as part of a salary sacrifice scheme for employees.

The current rates are shown on the HMRC website at www.hmrc.gov.uk/childcare (look at Guidance for Employees).

Chafyn Grove School is happy to accept CCVs from parents but, as ever, there are rules that must be followed. In essence, Chafyn children can benefit from this provision for an activity if it takes place outside normal school hours and on school premises, for example Boarding, Late-stay or holiday clubs. It is impossible to offer definitive advice without it becoming lengthy and complicated; our bursary department, rather than our website, provides the necessary detail most happily.

 Ordinary tuition fees can come into the scope of this scheme for children at Chafyn Grove from Nursery to Reception – birth-dates are a key factor. This currently mirrors the (separate) eligibility rules for provision of the Nursery Education Grant.

Chafyn Grove is registered with the following CCV providers (CCV Provider / Carer Number):

Edenred (was Accor Services) P20039348

Computershare Voucher Services/Leapfrog 0008059373
