MORAY COUNCIL PRE-SCHOOL FUNDING
Moray Council Pre-School Funding may be available for children aged 3-4, ensuring a substantial discount on these Kindergarten fees. Written details and application forms are available on request.
We offer a 15% discount on the fees of a second and any subsequent children attending Drumduan School. A sibling discount will not apply if a child is in receipt of Moray Council Early Years Funding.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE / BURSARIES
It is an aspiration of the school that wherever possible, parents pay full fees for the child’s education. To this end the school works actively and supportively with parents to identify ways for them to fundraise where there is an anticipated shortfall.
Drumduan School is committed however to broadening access to the school by offering means-tested financial support, whenever possible, to those families on low income. When assessing the bursary applications, priority will be given to supporting new families coming to the school or when a change in family circumstances for existing families occurs.
Any requests for a bursary should be made to the Finance Officer. Parents will be asked to complete a Bursary Application Form and return it with the required paperwork. A meeting between parents and our Finance Group may then take place, and following this a decision on a bursary award will be given.
Please note that Bursary Assistance is extremely limited. Any bursary agreement is for one year only, and parents must reapply annually.
