DCYP have released their new boarding school finder website which provides information about schools on the accredited schools database. The database is a list of schools available to families when applying for CEA.
Parents can now search for boarding schools (both state and independent) using search terms such a location, age range, explicit discounts and inspection rating. The website is available at bsf.mod.uk and the site works best on chrome and mobile devices.
If you are considering Boarding school for your child(ren), you should seek advice about your eligibility to claim the allowance (CEA) from your Unit HR and chain of Command. You can request a Boarding Schools Pack from The Children’s Education Advisory Service (CEAS) which gives comprehensive information and advice. Most importantly, you should read the regulations in JSP 752 very carefully to ensure you fully understand the implications of claiming the allowance. Advice and guidance regarding children’s education is available from CEAS: DCYP-CEAS-Enquiries@mod.gov.uk, with issues regarding claims and eligibility you should approach your Unit HR in the first instance.
