Charges for Activities, Clubs and Trips

Chargeable Trips for Academic Year 2019-20


In order to provide certain activities and trips, it is often necessary to ask for a contribution towards the cost of the trip or activity that may include entry fees and coach travel.  If adequate funding is not available, we may have to cancel the visit.  Please be aware that when parents are asked to contribute to an activity, the sum of money is calculated for your child only.  


No pupil will be excluded from an activity because his or her parents cannot or will not make a voluntary contribution. The opportunity to pay in installments will be offered to parents who wish to pay in this way.


Sometimes the school pays additional costs in order to support the visit, including the pupil premium.


It is our aim for parents not to pay more than £12 for a school trip which is not a residential trip. 


For parents that are eligible for Pupil Premium, the cost may be fully or partly covered by the bursary. If you would like to find out if your child is entitled to the bursary, please come to the school office to receive an application form. 


Lunch Provision for children entitled to Free School Meals

Children who will be attending an external school trip are to entitled to a packed lunch provided by the school. This will need to be ordered via the school office at least three days before the date of the trip.
