The Governing Body recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including clubs, out of school trips, residential and experiences of other environments, can make towards students’ all round educational experience and their personal and social development. (Throughout this policy, the term “parents” means all those having parental responsibility for a student.)
The Governing Body reserves the right to make a charge in the following circumstances for activities organised by the Academy:
Any insurance costs will be included in charges made for trips or activities.
Nothing in this policy statement precludes the Governing Body from inviting parents to make voluntary contributions. The Governing Body should make clear that such contributions are voluntary and those children of parents who do not contribute will not be discriminated against, and that if insufficient contributions are received the trip may be cancelled.
The Governing Body will review this policy annually and assess its implementation and effectiveness. The policy will be promoted and implemented throughout the Academy.
