At Castle Mead Academy we understand that some times Families will need additional support, as such, we aim to provide that help wherever possible.

Families can apply for our Hardship Fund, cases are assessed on an individual basis, and we can support with the cost of uniform or trips and visits.  

To apply, please email [email protected] for an application form. 

In addition Leicester City Council have a Household Support Fund which you can apply for at certain times of the year.  To see if you are eligible for support and to check the opening date for the next round of applications please visit Household Support Fund | Leicestershire County Council.

Castle Mead Academy has a full Early Help Support offer for families, further details of which can be found here –

If you need any further support, advice or help to complete your application form please contact our main office at [email protected]
