No compulsory charge can be made for any activity which occurs for more than fifty per cent of the time within normal school hours nor for any essential materials or equipment used during school hours, but parents may be asked for voluntary payments for visits or materials.
No student can be excluded from an activity on the grounds that the parents are unable to pay. For an activity to take place, sufficient funds will, of course, have to be available and this could well depend on the willingness of parents to contribute. There will be a remission of charges for those whose families which are in receipt of income support or family credit. These families should contact the Headteacher or School Business Manager. Applications for support with charges are considered on an individual basis.
We do charge for additional music tuition.
There is a full charging policy which may be seen upon request.
