The Governors of the school have to determine their own policy for charging for school activities beyond the normal school budget. The Governors of this school have decided to adopt a policy of voluntary contributions to meet the cost of any planned visits, residential courses and other activities such as visiting speakers. These are beyond the normal school budget and, although parents can now decline to contribute, no child will be excluded from participating. If insufficient voluntary contributions are received, events may need to be cancelled. Parents experiencing difficulties in these matters should contact the Headteacher in the strictest confidence.
We work to a £20 per child limit for the total cost of trips in one academic year that we will ask parents for.
