The Staff and Governors at St Peter's Brafferton Primary School are highly committed to ensuring that all children receive a free and full, enriched curriculum in order to maximise their full learning potential. We believe that activities organised by the school, as part of the children’s education should be available to all children regardless of parental financial circumstances. No child will ever be excluded from an activity for non-payment of a contribution, though there could be occasion when an activity may need to be cancelled if there is a significant shortfall overall.
Therefore, any parent who is unable to meet the cost of the voluntary contribution is asked to approach the Headteacher in confidence, either in writing or in person, so that special arrangements can be made.
In order to enrich and enhance the curriculum, activities may be organised for which the St Peters will request contributions from parents or carers. All such requests will be made in writing setting out the reason for the request. All such charges will not exceed the cost of the activity apportioned equally amongst those participating.
Parents have a right to know how each trip or event is funded and the school will provide this information on request.
