Charging Policy

 

At Oatlands School the children experience a rich and diverse curriculum. To enhance their experiences children participate in a number of curriculum linked school trips and visits each year.


We always endeavour to make these occasions excellent value for money. By law no charge can be made for any activity, or visit that takes place wholly or mainly during school hours which has a significant National Curriculum connection. This is to ensure that no child is excluded on the grounds of non payment.


Parents
are advised of any proposed special activity or visit and you are invited to make voluntary contributions towards the cost. If the contributions are not forthcoming, we will seek other sources of funding and then decide whether or not the proposed activity or visit will take place and inform you accordingly.
