Charging & Remissions

The Governing Body recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including trips and residential experiences can make towards pupils’ personal and social education.

The Governing Body reserves the right to make charges for the following activities:-

1. The board, travel and lodging costs of all types of residential visits.

2. The costs associated with activities that take place outside school hours and that are not required in order to fulfill statutory duties relating to the National Curriculum or to Religious Education.

3. Individual music tuition that takes place in or out of school hours and which is not provided to fulfill the requirements of the National Curriculum.

4. The cost of the materials involved in producing a finished product of a lesson where parents of pupils have indicated in advance a wish to own the product.

The Governing Body may from time to time amend categories of activities for which a charge may be made. The Governing Body will remit charges for the above activities 1, 2, 3 for pupils whose parents are in receipt of family credit or income support.

The Governing Body recognises that many parents are willing to make voluntary contributions towards certain school activities that enrich the level of educational experience available to pupils and welcome the continuation of this practice.
