We are aware that under the Education Reform Act 1988 that no charge can be made for education in school hours and that every child has the right to receive free school education. Also, we believe this policy complies with the Education Act 20002. We recognise that all activities offered during normal teaching time must be made available to all children regardless of their parents’ ability or willingness to help meet the cost.
We recognise the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including clubs, educational visits and residential experiences, can make towards pupils personal and social education. It is our intention to promote and provide such activities both as part of a broad and balanced curriculum and as additional activities. Therefore, any activity which takes place mainly during school hours or is an essential part of the curriculum will be provided free of charge. We are aware that we are able to ask for voluntary contributions from parent.
