Charges and Remissions
By law it is forbidden to charge for the provision of education during school hours but charges may be made for the following:
• music tuition (guitar, woodwind and keyboard lessons are available for Years 3/4/5/6 delivered by the Bradford Music Service)
• board and lodging where a school activity involves a residential element
• optional extras e.g. clubs run by a qualified coach
Voluntary contributions will generally be sought from parents/carers for school activities, e.g. trips of an educational nature. No child will be excluded from an educational visit if a voluntary contribution has not been made. However, if insufficient contributions are received, an activity may not be viable and may have to be cancelled. We thank our parents/carers for supporting such activities by making voluntary contributions, ensuring that children at Shibden Head gain from a variety of experiences which we might otherwise be unable to run.
The Focus Trust policy on charges and remissions can be viewed via the link below.
Further information regarding charges and remissions is available from the Headteacher.
