CHARGING AND REMISSIONS POLICY FOR SCHOOL VISITS.
The cost of each visit, including transport, entrance fees etc., will be calculated by the teacher and a price per child will be found.
A subsidy from School Fund will be calculated with a larger percentage subsidy being made for expensive visits. A voluntary contribution will then be requested from parents for the balance of the cost.
There is no longer any entitlement to funds from the Local Authority to help parents on low incomes to contribute towards visits, but any parent who has difficulty making the contribution should contact school to discuss an alternative arrangement.
Charging/Remission of Charges for Residential Visits
It is our aim that no child shall be excluded from a residential visit because their parents are unable to provide the cost. Visits which are arranged are therefore planned with this in mind. Plenty of notice and the opportunity to pay over a long period will always be given.
A subsidy towards the cost of transport on a residential visit may be made to any parent who is experiencing difficulties and contacts school to discuss this. This will be paid from the School Fund.
In the event of any concern regarding the curriculum or its delivery the first person to approach is the Headteacher. The Governing Body has a procedure to be followed if the problem cannot be resolved at this level. Details of this procedure are available on request.
APPLYING FOR THE SCHOOL
(a) If your child is going to reception class for the first time during the next academic year, you should contact the headteacher during the previous September / October. If the school is not your catchment area school, you must fill in an admission preference form and return it to the school of your choice by the preceding January. You can obtain an admission preference form from the school or from the Education Department.
(b) In all other cases, you should contact the Education Department (address below) or the Headteacher. Transfers between schools will normally take place at the beginning of a school term.
If your child attends the nursery class of a school which is not your catchment area school, he or she will not automatically be entitled to a place in that school at the age of 5. However at Three Lane Ends we will always make every effort to accommodate children who have attended our nursery.
