Charging and Remissions Policy
The most important statements are:
- No charges will be made for education provided (including relevant transport, materials, books, instruments and equipment) during school hours except for individual tuition on a musical instrument.
- Parents may be invited to make voluntary contributions to finance such things as educational visits.
- The 1988 Education Reform Act requires the LA and Governing Bodies to operate a remissions policy for pupils whose parents are in receipt of Income Support, or Income-Based Jobseekers’ Allowance.
The Governors have also decided that parents may be asked to pay towards the cost of repairing or replacing school property which has been damaged as a result of pupil’s behaviour.
