The School Governors recognise the valuable contribution that a wide range of additional activities, including out of school visits, can make towards pupils’ education.

The Governing Body aims to promote and provide such activities as part of a broad and balanced curriculum for pupils of the school, and reserves the right to make a charge in certain circumstances for activities organised by the school.

Parents may also be invited to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost of providing such activities. Charging may in certain circumstances be remitted in part or full where the parents are in receipt of Income Support. In such cases, parents should apply in confidence to the Governing Body via the Headteacher


Access to documents

As we operate an open door policy it is possible that all parents/carers can have access or sight of a range of documents within our school.

These may include:

  • Documents on the curriculum
  • Aims and objectives of the school
  • Any published HMI reports which refer to the school
  • Schemes of work used by teachers in the school

The Headteacher will supply parents and others on request with their own copies of the documents to which they have access. In some cases, for reasons of copyright schools will not be able to meet such requests. Parents and others wishing to obtain copies of crown copyright materials should apply to the Welsh Office (free publications or to HMSO (if priced publications).

All requests for copies should be submitted in writing two weeks in advance of the date when they are required.
