Charging & Remissions Policy

The charging provision is determined under the guidelines set out in section 110 of the Education Reform Act 1988. Activities and visits taking place wholly or mainly in school time will be funded by requesting voluntary contributions. No child will be excluded from an activity if his or her parents are unable or unwilling to make a contribution; however, if sufficient voluntary contributions are not received then activities may have to be cancelled.

When voluntary contributions to fund a particular activity are sought, parents on low incomes or who feel they may be entitled to remission of costs should contact the Head Teacher privately.

Our charging and remissions policy is available on the policies page of the website.
