Charging Policy

Charging and Remissions Policy

Government legislation states that schools are unable to insist that parents pay for trips etc. that take place in school time. Our governing body in common with all other schools sets out a charging policy to avoid the school going into debt or parents subsidising each other. The school receives no money from the education authority to fund trips and therefore this cost has to be passed on to parents. We consider that educational visits are essential in bringing learning to life and hope that you support us over this. The school makes no profit with a trip. If a parent has a financial problem then the school may be able to help and the Head teacher should be approached directly. However if a parent refuses to pay then the trip may be cancelled.
