EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES

Governors and staff of Clevedon School join with the Education Authority in promoting equality for all students. No child should suffer discrimination because of cultural or ethnic background, gender, religion or disability.

COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE

If parents have any concerns about the curriculum or school matters then these should be discussed informally with the relevant teachers in the first instance. For unresolved matters, the Headteacher should be contacted. Complaints will be dealt with in line with the Governors' Complaints Policy, a copy of which can be requested from the Clerk to the Governors, c/o Clevedon School.

The Chair of Governors can be contacted as follows:

CHARGING POLICY

The Governors will normally expect parents to pay for:

  • The cost of activities and optional extras taking place outside normal school hours, unless forming part of the National Curriculum.
  • All board and lodging costs on any residential trips.
  • The entry fee of any public examination for which a student has not been prepared at the school, or when a student fails to complete coursework or attend the examination without good reason.
  • Costs of repairs for damages arising from misbehaviour.
  • Cost of individual tuition in playing any musical instrument in or outside normal school hours, except where it is provided to fulfil requirements of the syllabus of the National Curriculum.

The school will deal with cases of financial hardship sympathetically and confidentially. No students will be identified or treated differently because of such circumstances.

VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTIONS

  • The Governors will invite voluntary contributions to the cost of a wide range of activities. Parents will not be asked to subsidise other students and therefore, if voluntary contributions do not meet the total cost, the activity may have to be cancelled.
  • Contributions will be sought to cover ingredients and materials used in the National Curriculum when the finished produce will be taken home.
  • Costs will be kept to a minimum.
