The Governor’s charging and remissions policy supports that outlined in DES Circular 2/89. In effect this means that voluntary contributions or charges will be requested to cover the costs of school visits and some other activities. There is no obligation on the part of parents to contribute and no differential treatment of pupils will be made. Parents who receive Family Credit or Income Support payments should contact the Head Teacher, as help may be available if there is any financial difficulty. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Parents are asked to contribute towards the costs of swimming and occasionally a contribution towards an item made in art, technology or cookery.
