Charging and Remissions

All education during school hours is funded. We do not charge for any activity undertaken as part of Religious Education or the National Curriculum, with the exception of some individual or small-group instrumental tuition. The 1988 Education Act draws a distinction between the term ‘charges’ which are considered to be an obligatory cost and ‘voluntary contributions’ which are self-explanatory.

Charges are made for:

Voluntary contributions may be asked for:

These lists are not exhaustive.

Both charges and voluntary contributions may be remitted under certain circumstances.

For example the charges for school lunches are remitted for some children qualifying for free school meals, if parents are in receipt of:

· Income Support;

· Income-based Jobseekers Allowance;

· Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999;

(application forms are available from the school office)

For example the voluntary contribution for an educational visit may be partly or fully funded by a bursary from the school’s voluntary fund, at the discretion of the head teacher on compassionate grounds.
