We have applied for a bursary for the local indie my son has applied for and we've both just had our interviews today - me with the 'out-reach' lady for the bursary and my DS with the teachers... I'm unsure as to whether a home visit means you have secured a bursary or not, but I am aware that in a number of cases, a home visit may be requested by the out-reach worker..
Hopefully somebody will show up that might have some experience? Or perhaps you can update this thread with your experience and the outcome and I can revisit with my experience.. I have 3 weeks to wait until the 'no' letter or 'offer' letter hits the mat, so will be interesting to see whether a home visit has any baring on securing assistance!
