EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Assisted Places) (Incidental Expenses) Regulations 1997 (“the 1997 Regulations”) in respect of a school year beginning on or after 1st September 2002. The 1997 Regulations provide for the payment of grants as regards incidental expenses, and for the remission of incidental expenses, in respect of pupils eligible to continue to hold assisted places at independent schools by virtue of section 2 of the Education (Schools) Act 1997, notwithstanding the abolition of the assisted places scheme by section 1 of that Act.

These Regulations relax the means test (set out in regulation 2 of the 1997 Regulations) and increase the amount of grant payable for uniform grant in respect of clothing expenditure incurred in relation to the 2002/2003 and subsequent school years.

These Regulations also relax the means test (set out in regulation 4 of the 1997 Regulations) for travel grant and increase the amount of grant payable.
