Charges for School Activities

Trips/Workshops Held During School Hours

The school will request voluntary contributions from parents towards activities organised by the school during school hours. The contribution from a parent is calculated by dividing the total cost incurred by the number of children participating. If insufficient voluntary contributions are forthcoming for an activity, then that activity may be cancelled.

 

Residential Trips

Fynamore School will charge parents for activities and travel associated with residential trips. The charge to a parent is calculated by dividing the total cost incurred by the number of children participating.

 

Fynamore School will also charge parents for the full cost of board and lodging for residential trips, except for parents who receive any of the following:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseekers Allowance
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit (provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
  • Universal Credit

 

Optional Trips

Optional trips, wholly or mainly outside of school hours, will be charged at full cost. These visits will not proceed where the full costs are not met by all those who wish to partake in the activity. The charge to a parent is calculated by dividing the total cost incurred by the number of children participating.

 

Swimming Lessons Held During School Hours

The school will request voluntary contributions from parents towards swimming lessons organised by the school during school hours. The costs include the transport to the pool, the hire of the pool, two swimming instructors and one Lifeguard. The contribution from a parent is calculated by dividing the total cost incurred by the number of children participating.

 

Instrumental Music Lessons

Charges are made for instrumental music tuition in school, unless the tuition forms part of the National Curriculum or the syllabus for religious education, in which case a charge is not made. The charges are set by the self-employed music teachers who come into school to provide the lessons.

 

Ingredients and Materials

The school may invite voluntary contributions towards the cost of ingredients, materials and equipment where parents have expressed the wish to have the finished product. The cost to a parent is calculated on the actual cost of the ingredients or materials.
