Charging and Remissions Policy

Although education is provided free of charge, the Governing Body recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including clubs, trips and residential experiences can make towards pupils’ personal and social education.

The Governing Body hope to promote and provide such activities both as part of a broad and balanced curriculum for the pupils of the school and as additional optional activities.

The Governing Body adopts theL.A.’s Policy.

The Head Teacher may seek voluntary contributions from parents for activities, in and out of school hours, which require additional resources. The contributions are genuinely voluntary, a parent’s inability or unwillingness to pay does not prevent a child from taking part in an activity. However, the Head Teacher may cancel the proposed activity if insufficient voluntary contributions are received. An example of the wording which could be used in correspondence to parents is as follows

The cost of this trip will be £…. which covers the cost of the coach and insurance. Under the terms and conditions of the 1988 Education Reform Act, the school is not allowed to make a charge for this activity, but we are permitted to ask for voluntary contributions. No child will be excluded if his/her parents do not wish to make this contribution.

However’ if sufficient voluntary contributions are not received, then regrettably the trip will not go ahead.

The Head Teacher may ask parents to pay for damage to and/or loss of school property and equipment when the accepted rules of the school have been disregarded.

The Governing Body reserves the right to make a charge of the full cost to each pupil for any payments necessary for activities outside school hours e.g. extra curricular activities and clubs.

The Governing Body may, from time to time, amend the  categories of activity for which a charge may be made.
