School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office. Paper copies are available from the school office.
Policy for Charging and Remissions
The School Governing Body has elected to adopt the County Policy on charging and remissions. In summary the arrangements are that, with certain exceptions, no charges can be made for activities taken up during the normal school day.
In order to continue to provide a variety of experiences for the children, parents are asked to make a voluntary contribution where it is not possible to provide from the School budget. Children whose parents decline or are unable to make a voluntary contribution are never excluded from the related activity.
The county operates a remissions policy in respect of those charges that can be made where entitlement exists. This means that in cases such as low income or parents on Income Support, charges may be reduced or waived.
There may be times when, trips may need to be cancelled if there are not sufficient voluntary contributions to cover the cost of the trip.
