On Wednesday 1st February, our school will be closed to the majority of pupils. We will have some support staff in school and will prioritise places for children who have additional needs. On Monday, we will be contacting parents of children who we are able to offer a place to.
We know that this national action will cause some parents and families difficulties with childcare arrangements and we do hope that the situation is resolved in a timely way.
To Parent/Guardian of child in Year 5 in September 2022
We have provisionally booked a 4-night residential visit to the Windmill Hill near Hailsham, Sussex from
Monday 16th October – Friday 20th October 2023. The visit includes a full programme of activities and is similar to those we have run in the past. The group will be accompanied by teaching staff from the school and fully qualified instructors at the centre supervise each activity. Whilst the trip is not essential for curriculum purposes, it provides an excellent opportunity for children to extend their learning and to refine their personal and social skills. A meeting for parents giving detailed arrangements will be held nearer the time.
The Year 6 residential trip is at beginning of the year to allow children to bond with their new teacher ready for the remainder of Year 6. It is also an opportunity for teachers to identify different strengths in children that we can build on throughout the year.
In order to help organise and plan this trip in advance, we would need to get an idea of the numbers of pupils who would like to attend. Therefore, for the visit to take place a payment of £483.00 per child is required. A non-refundable deposit of £65.00 must be paid via School Money in order to secure a place by 6th September 2022. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having any issues with your School Money account.
The full cost must be paid by monthly instalments via School Money by 10th July 2023, although we would appreciate it if payments could be made as early as possible. Cash and cheques will be accepted. Cheques should be made payable to Buckinghamshire Council Receipts Account. If you receive Income Support, Job Seekers Allowance or Child Tax Credit (not entitled to Working Tax Credit and with an income below £16040pa) please feel free to contact us if there are any difficulties involving the cost.
Only a limited number of places are available and we ask that deposits are made no later than 6th September 2022 to avoid disappointment.
Payments: £483 total
Non-refundable Deposit of £65 by 06/09/2022
11 regular monthly payments of £38 starting on 10/9/22 until 10/7/23 via School Money to secure my child’s place on the trip
