Scales of remission

13.—(1) In this regulation–

(a)“assisted pupil” means any child who holds an assisted place and, for the purposes of paragraphs (5), (6) and (7) of this regulation, an assisted pupil who is aided by virtue of the St Mary’s Music School (Aided Places) (Scotland) Regulations 2001(1), or the Education (Grants) (Music and Ballet Schools) Regulations 1995(2); and

(b)a reference to a relevant assisted place, in relation to an assisted pupil, is a reference to the assisted place held by them,

and for the purposes of this regulation, column (1) of Schedule 2 specifies bands of relevant income and column (2) of that Schedule specifies percentages of relevant income to be used in calculating parental contributions.

(2) Where the relevant income of parents of an assisted pupil in a preceding financial year does not exceed £11,116, fees for the school year to which that preceding year relates as respects any relevant assisted place shall be remitted in full by the participating school or schools concerned.

(3) Where–

(a)parents receive assistance in respect of only one child; and

(b)the relevant income of such parents in a preceding financial year falls within a band, or bands, of income specified in column (1) of Schedule 2,

the parents shall contribute from that income an amount (rounded down to the nearest multiple of £3) equal to the aggregate of the percentages (specified in column (2) of that Schedule) of those parts of the relevant income referred to in column (1) of that Schedule.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5)–

(a)fees for the school year in relation to which the preceding financial year referred to in paragraph (3)(b) relates as respects any relevant assisted place shall be remitted by the participating school or schools concerned to the extent of the amount by which the aggregate fees of such school or schools exceed the sum of parental contribution computed in accordance with paragraph (3); and

(b)that sum of parental contribution shall be recoverable by such school or schools from those parents in accordance with paragraphs (6) and (7) below.

(5) Where the number of assisted pupils in the same family is, for the time being, two or more, the sum of parental contribution mentioned in paragraph (3) shall be increased in accordance with the following scale:–

(a)where the number of such pupils is 2, by the factor of 1.5; and

(b)where the number of such pupils is 3 or more, by the factor of 1.75.

(6) Where assisted pupils from the same family attend two or more different participating schools, each participating school concerned shall be entitled to recover such amount of the parental contributions, relating to those pupils, as bears to that contribution the same proportion as the number of those pupils attending that school bears to the total number of assisted pupils for the time being in the family.

(7) Where a pupil does not hold an assisted place at a participating school for the full duration of the school year, that part of the parental contribution which is attributable in relation to that pupil shall be reduced by the same proportion as the part of the school year during which the pupil held the assisted place bears to the whole school year; and, for the purposes of this paragraph, the duration of the school year and such part shall be calculated with reference to the total number of school days occurring therein respectively.

(2)

S.I. 1995/2018, as amended by S.I. 1997/1967, 1998/1583 and 1999/1503.
