Extra Curricular Activities
Costs for Extra Curricular Activities (ECA's) will be sent out separately, close to the beginning of each term.
Trips & Residentials
Costs for trips and residential will be shared with relevant families as and when the trips and residential are planned.
Details of our process are shown below :
A non-refundable registration fee of £100.00 must accompany every application for admission or for a child to be placed on a waiting list.
A deposit of £500.00 per child is payable to confirm acceptance of a place in the school and is refundable at the end of the child’s normal time at school. The place is not confirmed until the fee is paid. If the child does not subsequently take up their pre-reserved place in the school, the acceptance fee is forfeited.
Payment of School Fees
School fees are due for payment five days before each term. Late payments will incur a £250.00 admin charge. Interest on overdue accounts will be charged on a weekly basis at 3% per month above the base lending rate. The school also reserves the right to refuse to accept a pupil for the following term whose account remains unsettled.
Early Years Funding for 3-4 Year Olds
The school partakes in the Early Years Funding scheme. To benefit from the reduced fees from the scheme, parents understand that a voluntary contribution, which makes up the shortfall between the funding the school receives and the actual school fees, will be requested. We only offer 15 hours funding.
A 10% reduction is made on tuition fees for the third and subsequent children in any one family attending the school.
Increase in Fees
The school reserves the right to increase the fees for tuition as and when it becomes necessary, giving prior notice whenever possible.
No reduction in fees can be made in cases of absence, irrespective of the cause of absence. Parents are advised to consider appropriate insurance to cover prolonged periods of absence from school.
Notice of Withdrawal of a Pupil
When a child joins Brackenfield School (including the Nursery Department) it is assumed that it is the intention of the parent for their child to complete his/her education at the school up to and including Year 6. However, if a parent chooses to withdraw a child from the school at any other time then the requisite notice in writing must be given, failing which Fees in Lieu of Notice will automatically be payable.
A term's written notice is required for pupils withdrawing from Brackenfield. Notice must be given by the last day of the Term preceding the last Term.
For the avoidance of doubt - as an example, if a parent wished to provide a Term's written notice to withdraw their pupil after the Autumn term (the term starting in September) then they must provide notice by the last day of Summer Term in order to allow a full term's notice.
When a child joins the school it is assumed that the parent has agreed to the following:
- In the event of need, the school will authorise medical treatment for a child without further request.
- Children will be transported to matches, trips, etc by whatever arrangements the school deems to be appropriate.
- The school may take photographs of activities that involve children and use these photographs responsibly for displays, publications, the school website and for local newspaper articles.
If parents have any objection to any of the conditions in the above paragraph (General) they must forward their objection in writing to the school. Parents may withdraw their consent to these 3 general conditions at any time providing this is done in writing.
Cancelling Acceptance of a Reception Place
In the case of pupils joining at the start of Reception, written notice must be given by the end of February half term of the year that they will be starting in Reception. If notice is received after this point it will be considered late notice and one term's fees at the rate payable for the term of entry (not limited to the parental contribution in the case of a scholarship, bursary or other award or concession), less the Acceptance Deposit, payable as a debt immediately unless the place is filled immediately and without loss to the school.
