FEE CHARGING POLICY
Fees for the Extended Schools Provision are to be paid half-termly in advance. If you have booked a session you will be charged whether your child attends or not. This includes sickness and family holidays. If 2 weeks notice has been given of cancellation you will be charged 50% of the normal fee to retain your child’s place. Please note without two weeks notice full charges will be incurred.
Booking forms and invoices will be issued in the penultimate week of each half term. Payment dates will be by the end of week two of each half term.
In the case of late bookings being made by parents – these are bookings made outside the expected booking form and invoice system - fees will be expected upon collection of the child and incur an additional booking fee of £2 per hour e.g. a last minute booking for the After School Club for 3.00 – 4.30pm will be £9.00.
You will be charged for the next session (a further £6.00) if you do not collect your child within 15 minutes of the collection time, without prior arrangement (i.e. a phone call to say you will be late).
