The school endeavours to provide as many opportunities as possible for no extra charge. However, there will be a number of educational activities which the school cannot provide without financial support from parents. These might include:
1. Educational visits (transport and entry cost)
2. Residential visits
3. Design, craft and cooking activities (to cover the cost of ingredients and materials if the children are to take the finished product home)
4. Music tuition
5. Extra-curricular sports activities
Without this support some activities would not be able to take place. The school is able use its Pupil Premium Grant to support children who qualify for this regarding these charges. If you are in receipt of certain benefits or your child is adopted, subject to a Special Guardianship Order, or is the child of Forces Personnel. Further information can be obtained from the school office.
We aim to make our curriculum as interesting and engaging as possible, and as part of this, we include a range of practical activities which involve children making items to bring home. In order to enable these activities we ask parents to make an annual voluntary contribution of £10.
We are justifiably proud of our school library, the large stock we have and the wide choice of books available. Maintenance of these books is a major consideration. With this in mind we may charge for lost or damaged books.
Further details regarding charging can be found in our Charges and Remissions Policy.
