Charging and Remissions
The Governing Body recognises the valuable contribution that the wide range of additional activities, including trips, clubs and residential experiences can make towards pupils' education. The Governors aim to promote and provide such activities both as part of a broad and balanced curriculum for our children, and as additional optional activities. However, due to the limited funds in the budget, the Governors reserve the right to make a charge in certain circumstances for activities organised by the school. The Governors will, from time to time, review and amend the categories of activity for which a charge may be made. This policy complies to Sections 449-462 of the Education Act 1996.
Loughborough C of E Primary School has a consistent policy of making parents/carers feel welcome at the school. Governors hope that parents/carers find it easy to discuss their child’s progress with members of staff. However, if there are particular concerns which parents/carers feel have not been resolved through discussion with school staff and the headteacher, we encourage the parent/carer to contact the Chair of Governors, Howard Jones, by email/letter (c/o the school office), so that the matter can be dealt with quickly and informally.
The Complaints Policy is for the benefit of parents/carers of pupils at the school and accords with good practice. This policy will be relied upon in respect of all complaints by parents/carers against school staff except in the following areas, where separate policies exist:
- child protection allegations
- permanent exclusion
- admission appeals
- appeals relating to internal assessment decisions for external qualifications
