Policy on charging for school activities

Parents may be asked to make voluntary contributions for any visit or journey organised by the school and approved by the Governors. Although the matter of a voluntary contribution will not be a factor in deciding whether a pupil is allowed to participate in an activity to be financed by voluntary contributions, the school reserves the absolute right to determine whether the level of contributions is sufficient to enable the activity to take place.

The Governors will apply the statutory minimum remissions to any charges which they make; that is, in respect of pupils whose parents are in receipt of income support or family credit. Any further remission of charges will be at the absolute discretion of the Governors.

The Governors reserve the right to ask parents to contribute to the cost of replacement items incurred as a result of breakages, loss or damage, of books, equipment, material, other than the normal fair wear and tear.
