Charges and Remissions

Charges

The Government will apply any charges levied by the LA for services which it provides and also the remission arrangements which the Authority considers appropriate. The governors reserve the right to levy a charge in any circumstance permissible under the Education Reform Act, which include:-

  • Board and lodging costs incurred on residential visits

 

  • Individual tuition in the playing of a musical instrument whether in or out of school hours (unless such tuition is provided as part of the syllabus for a prescribed in Regulations by the Secretary of State or is required by the National Curriculum).

 

  • Activities which take place wholly or mainly outside school hours, but which are not provided as part of the syllabus for a prescribed public examination and are not required in order to fulfil statutory duties in relation to the National Curriculum or to Religious Education.

 

Breakages

The Governors reserve the right to ask parents to contribute to the cost of replacement of lost, broken or damaged books, equipment or other items, except where caused by normal fair wear and tear.

Charging in Kind

Where parents indicate in advance that they wish to own the finished product of a practical activity they may be asked to provide or pay for any ingredients, materials, equipment etc.. needed. No child will be at a disadvantage because of a parent’s unwillingness or inability to contribute in this way.

Voluntary Contributions

Parents may be asked to make voluntary contributions for any visit or journey by the school and approved by the governors. Although the matter of voluntary contribution will be a factor in deciding whether a pupil is allowed to participate in an activity to be financed by voluntary contributions, the school reserves the absolute right to determine whether the level of voluntary contributions is sufficient to enable the activity to take place.
