The purpose of the Remote Area Boarding Grant scheme is to give students who are disadvantaged because of their remoteness from schools an opportunity to attend school on the same basis as students not so disadvantaged.
The terms of this scheme are set out in Circular 16/2016 which is published on my Department’s website at .
I am pleased to say that the application referred to by the Deputy has been approved.
The pupil’s parents have recently been informed of this decision.
