Worthington Primary School

Charging and Remissions Policy

The Governors have accepted Trafford Local Education Authority’s policy on charging and remission, which came into force on 1 April 1989. The policy, in brief, states that: education in county schools provided wholly or mainly during the school hours should in general be free.

It states that transport between school and the swimming baths will be free. It states that the Authority does not operate its discretion to provide clothing for pupils. It states that an individual Governing Body may decide whether to make a request to parents towards the cost of certain activities, for example: visits by theatre groups to school; and visits to museums and places of interest which support work carried out in school.

In our school, charges are also made for individual orchestral instrument tuition, along with certain before and after school clubs provided by outside agencies and companies, and our wrap around care provision.
