CHARGING & REMISSION POLICY
Roxeth Primary School believes that all our pupils should have an equal opportunity to benefit from school activities and visits (curricular and extra curricular) independent of their parents’ financial means. This charging and remissions policy describes how we will do our best to ensure a good range of visits and activities is offered and, at the same time, try to minimise the financial barriers which may prevent some pupils taking full advantage of the opportunities.

All complainants have the right to be accompanied when making the complaint, and pupils may be accompanied by a parent or another adult.
