There are occasions throughout the year when groups of children are involved in visits out of school, but within school hours, or visits to the school from theatre companies or other groups. We try to keep the cost of these activities to a minimum and both the school and the PTA contribute towards the cost. However, on occasions it is necessary to ask for voluntary contributions from parents towards the cost of an activity. Opportunities are provided for parents to pay in instalments and if a parent is unable to contribute they may discuss this with the Headteacher who will make alternative arrangements to cover the cost.
We ask all parents to contribute towards the curriculum enrichment fund, and (subject to
Governors’ approval) the amount for 2016/17 will be £10 per family per school year. This enables us to
fund visits from experts such as authors, dancers or theatre groups or other special events. This fund
may also be used to provide resources for classrooms that are not normally supplied, for instance, extra
art materials or cooking ingredients.
Our Charging Policy can be found below, and under the Policy section of the Key Information tab.
