Charges & Remissions
We believe the children benefit from outside visits, journeys, visitors and extra curricular
activities in sport and the creative arts. We follow government
regulations on charging. When an event takes place during school time, we ask
families of children benefiting to share the cost. Legally, we can request
voluntary contributions, but if we do not receive enough funds to cover the cost, plans
may be cancelled.
Remission of Charges
No child is barred from attending because his/her parents have not contributed.
Families eligible for benefits and other families that the headteacher determines are experiencing
financial hardship, are not expected or pressured to pay. We keep such
information confidential and handle situations discretely.
This policy applies to payments for any books, music lessons, children’s school
equipment (pens, etc.) and school events such as discos.
In years 4, 5 and 6 children may go on school trips spending 2-4 nights away.
Government regulations allow us to charge the cost of board and lodging for
children, except for those families eligible for benefits.
The School Fund
We do not want any child to miss these valuable experiences. The school voluntary
fund subsidises the overall cost, if necessary, so that the entire class can benefit.
All payments, including dinner money, should be paid via the SchoolMoney website. If you have problems accessing
the website please contact our office staff who will be happy to assist.
If you have a query about a charge office staff are available between 8.30 a.m. and
4 p.m. to answer queries.
