Charging Policy

Dinner Monies

Dinner Money is £2.05 per day, £10.25 per week for children in Key Stage 2. This is payable every Monday, a week in advance.

From September 2014 the government announced that all children in Reception, Year 1 and 2 will have a free school meal.

Elm and Birch Healthy Tuck-shop

Tuck-shop is open to all pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 each playtime, when a piece of fruit can be purchased at a cost of £1.50 per week.


From Year 1, pupils are invited to have weekly instrument lessons. The cost per term is around £35.

School Trips

School trips are organised each year and we ask parents to cover the cost of transport and entrance fees/charges on a voluntary donation basis. Parents are informed of the costs by letter giving details of the trip and requesting a signed permission slip. Although a voluntary donation is requested, if there are insufficient contributions the trip may not go ahead. Discrete arrangements can be made with the Headteacher to pay over a longer period or extend the deadline.

Activities in School

At times, we invite theatre companies and other organisations to perform or give presentations to the children. These usually incur charges and we ask for a contribution towards the cost on a voluntary basis.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club is open daily from 7.30am. There is no charge for this, although toast is available for a small charge.

After School Club

Our After School is open until 4.30pm and is free every day.

Safeguarding Notice

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or welfare of any of our pupils, please contact the school’s Designated Safeguarding Lead.
