Money in School
School is working towards a cashless system and therefore prefers all payments to be made through the School Gateway
School Gateway (School Comms)
Money for trips needs to be put into the class registration tray at the start of the school day. This is not dealt with by the class teacher, so it must be in a purse or envelope which is clearly labelled with your child's name, class and what the money is for. The correct amount of money would be greatly appreciated - it is not always possible to give the correct change on the same day. Also, any change that is given is put back into the class tray and we prefer not to have large amounts of money in these trays at the end of the school day.
The school has a policy of arranging, wherever possible, class visits to support the curriculum. Parents will be asked for a voluntary contribution towards these trips. Charges will be kept to a minimum and it is the parent's right to "opt out" of any arranged visit. unfortunately, the school may find it necessary to cancel such visits if sufficient funds are not available. for residential trips in school time, parents are required to meet the full cost except where their child is in receipt of free school meals, where some venues make a small reduction in costs. Occasionally we arrange for outside groups to put on performances in school, a voluntary charge for these is also made.
Themed Days and Events
Money for themed days and events must be in a purse or envelope which is clearly labelled with your child's name, class and what the money is for. The correct amount of money would be greatly appreciated.
Valuables in School
Children must not bring extra money or valuables into school. We will not accept any responsibility for items lost, stolen or damaged.
The wearing of jewellery of any kind is not allowed in school. the exceptions to this rule are watches, small ear studs and medical identification items, such as SOS chain/bracelet. Again the school will not be held responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items.
All jewellery, including SOS chains, watches and small ear studs (including sports studs), must be removed for all PE activities, including swimming.
